You just can’t make this stuff up.
FOX News Latino reported:

House Speaker John Boehner is aiming to have various chamber committees finish work on immigration legislation by the Fourth of July, and would like a House vote by August, reported

The speaker wants to see movement on either several small immigration bills or a more comprehensive one before the Senate votes on its measure, Politico reported. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, scheduled a cloture vote on the immigration bill for Tuesday.

The Senate is expected to vote on the full bill, called the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act, by July 4.

A bipartisan group in the House has been working on a bill, but has encountered stumbling blocks on achieving a consensus on parts of the measure, leading one of its members –Rep. Raul Labrador, a Republican from Idaho– to drop out. Labrador said he left the so-called “Group of Eight” over the issue of access to health care programs for undocumented immigrants who pursue a legal status under a reformed system.

As Rep. Louie Gohmert said, “I cannot imagine a more incompetent step right now than for Republicans to focus on immigration.”
