Obama to Dems: Boehner will pass immigration reform in 2014

Obama believes Republicans will feel politically vulnerable if they fail to advance the issue, a high priority among Hispanic voters, according to Democratic senators who met with the president this week.

Obama sees immigration reform as a source for optimism in what has otherwise shaped up as a tough year for Democrats.

β€œHe predicted the House would pass something this year,” said Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), who attended the meeting.
