WASHINGTON (Reuters) - House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner on Wednesday held out the possibility that he might bring U.S. immigration legislation to the floor by the end of the year.
Asked at a question-and-answer session with reporters if he intends to bring up immigration reform this year, Boehner, a Republican, replied: "I still think that immigration reform is an important subject that needs to be addressed and I am hopeful."

Boehner: GOPe all the way, in the final analysis.
Thataboy Johnny, help Obama you POS.
What’s with Boehner? Does he travel to MARS for extended periods of time so that he does not know how Americans feel about the crap that he seemingly supports? He has been inside the Beltway far too long. Get him on the next shuttle to Uranus. (Yes I meant it the way it is pronounced.)
Godspeed in your efforts. I cringe when broadcaster Bill Cunningham describes Boehner as “his friend”. I would hang my head in shame to have to say that. Boehner works for the other team. He’s a feckless unreliable yes-man, put there to broker the surrender. Best of luck to your campaign.
Boner’s a POS.
It’s really a hard choice as to whether I loathe and despise the Obamadork or the Boehnerdork more.
What on earth is Boehner talking about?
Stick to one monumental problem at a time man!
We NEED TO STOP OBAMACARE RIGHT NOW. Everything else is LATER. Don’t dilute the message. Don’t change the subject. Don’t give the other side other things to distract with. JUST OBAMACARE UNTIL IT’S GONE.
Come ON!!!! (I really have given up on the GOP, it’s time for another party to replace their name and brand.)
He throws this out there to divert attention. ANYTHING to help the Dems.
Somebody shut that guy up. Lock him away somewhere.
Best of luck to you in your congressional run. It must stink to discover Boehner’s true beliefs, after having supported his past campaigns with political contributions.
By ‘bring it up’ he means do whatever obama wants.
Why is he still speaker after last week?????
Oh great - it’s impossible to find a job as it is in the Semiconductor field, as they use a huge flood of H1-Bs to depress wages.
The “immigration bill” would DOUBLE the number of H1-Bs.
I’ve been unemployed now for over a year, scrambling and studying like a madman to find a job, to no avail.
The stress builds up. Insomnia. Loss of confidence. Loss of relationships. Short fused. Grey hair.
Screw you John Boehner, from the bottom of my native-born US Citizen heart!
what a POS. Amid all the crap, this bastard has to pile on with more sell-out insanity. Totally gratuitous and shameful
They are going to destroy the Republican Party on purpose.
After the 2014 “selections” we will be an official one-party state, down from the unofficial one-party state we have now.
BonerCare is his.
He helped Dems and a minority of Rs win continued funding of BonerCARE.
And here it comes.....
Obama: We will delay the Individual Mandate for 6 months if you give me an up or down vote on immgration reform.
Boehner: Yup, just like we discussed. Would you like another trillion on the debt ceiling?
WHOO-HOO! Stay on that losing streak, Boehner! Don’t quit now. Go for broke, baby! All the way! That must have been quite a boy you were caught with. Hope it was worth it you POS.
If Boehner brings up amnesty (let’s drop this “comprehensive immigration” reform crap) there will be Democrat control of the House in 2014.
There is no reason to vote Republican when its leadership is committed to suicide. Let the Democrats have control of everything. At least it will focus the blame where it belongs.
Good for you. Please do not be nice to him. Treat him like the POS he is. Most of us want to see a fighter, who doesn’t take any BS from the GOPe, or the rats. F all of them. Gouge their effing eyes out.
When you understand the true goals their behavior makes perfect sense. No one since Ike ever attempted to do anything about immigration. No one has insisted that current laws be enforced, and no one seems to care enough to ask why.
Perhaps you should create something on your “About Page” to tell us what you’re about and where you stand.
I suggest you work up an FR homepage.
By the way, I think Boehner is just paying lip service to the notion of bringing up immigration reform. He needs to assuage the Chamber of Commerce donors and throw a phony bone to groups representing illegal aliens so as not to give them advertisement ammo. Boehner is just giving the generic answer he has to give. He is well aware that any “comprehensive immigration reform” sent over from the Senate is dead on arrival in the House, and anything the House comes up with will be “enforcement first” piecemeal stuff with no hint of amnesty.
Thanks. And you’re right. Bill C. is part of the problem when he starts supporting the career politicians.
It’s rather stupid to take up immigration as a distraction from Obamacare and the economy.
God’s speed to you. You can’t do any worse.
they are all on the same side .....Boehner, Issa, Paul Ryan, Obama, Reid...all want the same thing...amnesty and the final destruction of the country
This isn’t “immigration reform” no matter how many times the Open Borders wing of the GOP repeats this lie.
It is amnesty, a reward for citizens of foreign countries who decided to break our laws.
They enter the country illegally. They remain here illegally. They work here illegally.
They drive without licenses. They drive without insurance. They burden us with paying their medical bills. They are making English an optional language.
In previous decades rewarding foreign nationals for breaking our laws wouldn’t be called “reform”. It would be known by names for what it really is: treachery, betrayal, subversion, treason.
