House Speaker John A. Boehner announced Tuesday he has hired a longtime advocate of immigration legalization to be his policy adviser, encouraging immigration activists but angering those who want to see a crackdown and who say Mr. Boehner's move signals he still wants an "amnesty" bill to pass.
It was far from his most expensive initiative, but it may end up being one of his most significant: The Millennium Challenge Corp., which President George W. Bush set up to push foreign countries to better govern themselves, has set a new standard for foreign aid.
But "the times are changing, and I think that now we recognize that now is the time to strike," Mr. Kolbe said.
Rep. Jim Kolbe, Arizona Republican, who is openly gay, told the Thursday news conference that his partner, who is from Panama, has run into difficulty coming to the United States because of the federal law.
