Boehner, undeterred by opposition, moves forward on immigration

“I wouldn’t be surprised” if immigration legislation came to the House floor as early as this spring, one well-connected GOP member said.

Boehner’s office has released several documents touting the GOP principles since the retreat, some of which include almost cartoonish defenses of a proposal.

The “principles” would “eliminate the ability for any administration to arbitrarily decide which laws to enforce,” a Q&A posted on Boehner’s website says.

Meanwhile, top amnesty proponents outside Congress say they were relatively pleased with the principles and how they were received by the GOP.
