Obama: Immigration Will ‘Haunt’ Congress
President Obama warned Congress that failure to move on immigration reform would come back to “haunt” certain members.
“I think it is very important for Congress to recognize that this is going to be an issue that haunts them until it gets solved,” he said.
He also accused Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) of refusing to spend political capital to move legislation through the house.
“And I’m hoping that once we get through some of the Republican primary season, maybe, you know, as we are still far enough away from November, that people see a chance to do the right thing,” Obama said.
