Sen. Mitch McConnell Tuesday referred to immigration as an “irresolvable conflict.”
“I don’t see how you get to an outcome this year with the two bodies in such different places,” he said during his weekly press conference. He was referring to the fact that the Senate passed comprehensive reform, while the House is pursuing piecemeal legislation.
It may sound like mere political analysis, but — coming from Minority Leader McConnell — this strikes me as an important signal that immigration reform isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
