Boehner: ‘Healthy’ talk with Obama on immigration reform

Speaker changes tone on prospect for action

- The Washington Times - Thursday, February 27, 2014

Immigration was the one area of agreement House Speaker John A. Boehner highlighted out of his private meeting this week with President Obama, signaling that the prospect for legislation may still have legs this year.


At his weekly briefing the House GOP leader was asked to identify one area of potential cooperation that emerged out of the meeting, and he mentioned the thorny issue that continues to divide his party.

"Immigration — we had a very good, very healthy conversation on immigration," Mr. Boehner said.

It marks a change of tone from just earlier this month when Mr. Boehner said that progress on immigration reform had stalled because congressional Republicans don't trust Mr. Obama to enforce the laws.
