IRS scandals, spying on Americans and now a possible Syria conflict not mentioning all the rest of the Obama administrations inept BS.

It looks like the Obama Amnesty program will be seriously delayed and most likely derailed.

The longer this drags on and the closer it gets to midterm elections the chances of it dying are ever increasing.

It will be political suicide later in the year for those backing this flawed Illegal alien wet dream.

One possible solution would be to ship the Illegals and their spoiled dreamie spawn to Syria, that would be a win -win for all Americans.

Odumbo will be looking for distractions to deflect from the scandals. A campaign tour for CIR would fit that bill.

It can go either way. Tho if Obama has another big scandal; that might finish off his term before 2016.

The lack of job creation alone should derail this.

Here we have few jobs being created and Obama wants to throw at least 11 million more people into the legal labor force to grab up what jobs might open up so that more Americans will be forever unemployed.

Then there is the issue of the health care needs of these impoverished foreigners -- who is going to pay their Obamacare? It's difficult for Americans to pay for their own health insurance, the vast majority of the illegals are not paying for health insurance now, and as they lose their illegal jobs and start trying to find legal jobs, how many of those jobs will provide health insurance benefits?

Also Obama has not explained who is going to pay for the retirements of the elderly illegals and all those nearing retirement age. Will they simply be added to the social security program and be eligible for social security checks even if they never worked or paid into social security? Or will they be given disability checks the rest of their lives?

Boehner said this should pass the House by the end of the year.
This is becoming bipartisan.

They'll just add pork to buy votes.

As Sen. Rubio said yesterday, the immigration reform proposal making its way through the U.S. Senate is just about "perfect." Immigration reform will pass the Senate. The votes are there ... if it's allowed to be voted on. Regarding "scandals", none has implicated the President as having done anything wrong. In fact, those "scandals" have the fingerprints of the GOP all over them.

Anything to derail this bill is a good thing.

Perfect for whom? Certainly not our own citizens.

It is amusing that some think that the Dems see it is as in the best interest of the Dems, to get a broad Immigration Bill passed before 2016.
