Immigration vote may have to wait until October, says Paul Ryan

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) told attendees at a town hall in Racine, Wis., that his chamber could start voting on immigration bills that month – pushing the timeline for action in the House even further back.

“Tentatively, in October, we’re going to vote on a border security bill, an interior enforcement bill, a bill for legal immigration,” Ryan said, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The Republican-led House will also move on legislation for “people who are undocumented,” Ryan said.

A spokesman for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), whose office sets the House floor schedule, said Friday that there are “no scheduling announcements to make.” A spokesman for Ryan said in an email that the Wisconsin Republican was noting “his preference for legislative action to fix our broken immigration system.”
