For Labrador, the subject is no laughing matter.
“The problem is Obama, not House Republicans,” he said. ”Speaker Boehner should have made that point, instead of criticizing the people he is supposed to be leading. I know Speaker Boehner sincerely cares about immigration reform as much as I do. If he wants the Republican Conference to follow him on this issue, he needs to stand up for House Republicans, instead of catering to the media and special interest groups.”
“While America’s immigration system is broken, immigration reform will not and should not happen in 2014,” Labrador has said, because “President Obama and Democratic leaders interfered with a good faith bipartisan effort to reach an agreement in the House on immigration reform.”
