Speaker Boehner Shouldn't Delay Immigration Reform Any Longer: Editorial

House Speaker John Boehner has once again blamed mistrust of President Barack Obama for the Republicans' unwillingness to move ahead on immigration reform.

But it's a nonequivalent comparison designed to confuse and delay…

A pro-reform coalition that includes the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, National Immigration Forum, Service Employees International Union, Sojourners, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human rights, and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on Migration recently urged "speaker Boehner and his colleagues to seize the moment," while calling on Obama to restrain himself from taking any executive action on immigration until at least August.

That's sound reasoning -- and it comes from the people for whom immigration reform matters most.
