President Barack Obama won’t get to sign an immigration bill, per Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. “Not in this Congress,” McConnell said when asked about the prospects for immigration legislation. “I think when the president took the action he did after the 2014 election he pretty much made it impossible for us to go forward with immigration reform this Congress. The concern that we expressed on this was validated: he is currently under a court order with what he decided to do.” McConnell has made similar comments before.
