Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has hired a new expert on immigration policy, a move that could signal a renewed House effort to act on the issue in 2014.
Rebecca Tallent, director of immigration policy at the Bipartisan Policy Center, will start her new job as assistant to the Speaker on Wednesday. Her arrival was one of a series of personnel moves Boehner announced on Tuesday.
Former Gov. Haley Barbour (R-Miss.), a co-chairman of the think tanks immigration task force, said Boehners decision to bring in Tallent was affirmation of his strong desire to move legislation in 2014.

Traitorous, cowardly scum!
I loathe, dispise, and f*rt in the general direction of this smegma-lipped piece of excrement.
May he lie just a bit lower in hell than Mohammed, Obama, and Dead Ted.
May she be as successful as anything else McCain has been involved with .
She was the brains behind the “border fence”.
No longer a registered Republican and with this kind of person in charge its no wonder the party of Stupid continues its downhill slide
Where’s the FENCE!
Why bother to pass any legislation when we have an administration that will only follow the parts of it that they like and ignore the rest?
“Where’s the fence?”
It is right on top of the tunnels underneath it.
John Boehner - The Marshal Pétain of the GOP.
Just another day representing the American People. Thanks a bunch, John!
My first rule, if McCain is for it, I am not.
Time for the people to hire a new Speaker of the House.
Great. The GOPe is going to trade Amnesty for additional cuts to the military.
All rolled into one cowardly idiot calling himself Speaker of the House. Selling us out again. F the Republican Party , I have had enough.
Article says early next year is when there is a window of opportunity. I think it will instead be in the lame duck session. That’s when all those rinos we unemploy will gang up with the rats for a final screwing of the base.
She was the author of the McCain-Kennedy Amnesty Bill in 2005.
Is bonehead THIS #$%king dumb? Or could he be stringing the Democrats and the media along. He HAS to know he and the Whigs we lose in Nov if he pulls a stupid stunt on amnesty - doesn’t he?
the Amnesty and GOP suicide act.
How much are the Dems paying Boner to shaft the 24 million
LEGAL Americans who are unemployed or working part time because the Government has the USA taxes higher than any western industrial country?
Yup— it’s never too late for defeat for the Republican establishment.
Other than big business and labor unions, who will benefit from the amnesty of 20+ MILLION illegals? And yes, it will be over 20 MILLION! I do not believe the BS 11 million that the Dems and MSM spout!!
I mean, the ONLY reason the GOPe is behind this is because they get the “implied assurance” that big businesses will continue to give to the Reps the paltry crumbs of the real BREAD which big businesses actually give to the Dems!
It is the ol’ “give me lots of cheap labor today for a few dollars on election day” trick and the GOPe fall for it every single time!
My god throw this orange moron out.
Day after day of Obamacare disaster news, and the guy wants to pass the ‘create 20 million democrats bill’.
What happened to being scared of distracting from Obamacare as was charged of Ted Cruz? I guess that’s out the window.
Well, on the plus side, most ex-McCain aides can’t stand him.
Where is a winning strategy going to come from when a loser hires a member of a losing team of a loser? The new GOP strategy, retreat, entrench, relinquish and oh yeah, cry!
