Boehner: Boston Bombing Shouldn’t Delay Immigration Reform

by Andrew Johnson

Despite concerns following last week’s bombing, Speaker John Boehner said he doesn’t expect the incident to postpone immigration-reform legislation, and that he personally thinks it shouldn’t. “It may [sideline it] for a couple days,” Boehner said on Fox News this morning. “Primarily, I’m in the camp of, if we fix our immigration system, it may actually help us understand who all’s here, why they’re here, and what legal status they have,” he added.
