Pelosi predicts passage of immigration reform bill before summer

by Mike Lillis - The Hill
March 21, 2013

Pelosi’s timeline is the most ambitious marker laid out by a political leader this year, but echoes other positive remarks from members of both parties in recent days.

While lamenting a “very difficult” political environment on Capitol Hill, Pelosi (D-Calif.), speaking to a Hispanic group in Washington, said immigration stands out as an issue where Democrats and Republicans can work together.

“The good news is that we really do think that … on the immigration issue, that we will, before summer, have comprehensive immigration reform,” Pelosi told the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in the Capitol.

Both Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) on Tuesday said the bipartisan group negotiating a deal in the House is making good progress.

Members of a separate Senate group have also reported progress, and said they could have a bill completed by the end of March.

Hoyer and Boehner were more cautious than Pelosi, however.
