If there was any hope in passing comprehensive immigration reform before the end of the year, such hope is lost. On Wednesday, House Speaker John Boehner repeated his opposition to the Senate-passed immigration bill and pledged that the House would never vote on it. "I'll make clear we have no intention ever of going to conference on the Senate bill." While immigration reform advocates were cautiously optimistic reform would occur before the end of the year, only 15 working days are left for the House to take the issue up. Boehner's comment seems to be the nail in the coffin for immigration reform in 2013.
