Obama: Immigration reform will get done by end of presidency

The Hill, By Justin Sink, February 14, 2014

President Obama predicted that Congress would pass an immigration reform bill before the end of his presidency in a Univision Radio interview airing Friday.

“I believe it will get done before my presidency is over,” the president said. “I’d like to get it done this year.”

While the Senate passed a comprehensive immigration bill in a bipartisan vote last year, efforts in the House had faltered. Republican leaders earlier this year outlined a series of principles that appeared to indicate they were open to pursuing immigration reform.
