Boehner: Immigration Reform This Year is Unlikely

Cites GOP lack of trust of the president as one of the reason


WASHINGTON–House Speaker John Boehner on Thursday joined other top congressional Republicans suggesting an immigration overhaul this year is increasingly unlikely, citing competing legislative approaches and a lack of trust among the GOP towards President Obama.

"There's widespread doubt about whether this administration can be trusted to enforce our laws, and it's going to be difficult to move any immigration legislation until that changes," Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters Thursday.
