In it, but not of it. TPM DC

House To Senate On Immigration: Your Move

Newscom / Scott J. Ferrell

A House aide e-mails TPM to say that "My boss was told in no uncertain terms from leadership that there is no way we're doing Immigration reform this year. Just no way."

Another senior Democratic adviser put the issue less starkly, telling TPM that "House members have put themselves out there taking votes on major issues first this year. It's not that we can't do it ... we just want to see the Senate move first."
