House Takes Break from Immigration Debates During August Recess

However many businesses, religious and law enforcement organizations will continue to lobby members of the House on immigration reform. USA Today reports that while House Republican leaders flatly rejected the comprehensive immigration package that the Senate passed June 27, making it seem as though immigration reform was destined to die a slow death,it appears likely that votes on a series of bills are possible in October and that a conference committee with the Senate could be completed in December or early next year, before midterm election-year politics paralyze Capitol Hill.

There remains hope that some form of immigration reform will be passed by Congress by this year's end. See the article from USA Today here.
