Another Immigration Reform Battle?

By Bill O'Neil 

You can see the political battle lines being drawn amid the continuing to unfold crisis of undocumented children flowing oveer the southern border in to Texas. 

"A few days ago, I would have been more optimistic about comprehensive immigration reform" said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi following a weekend visit to one immigration holding facility in Brownsville. The one-time Speaker of the House said she is not confident current Speaker John Boehner will push lawmakers in that direction any time soon.  

"I don't think he gives us much reason to be hopeful now--but we never give up, there's still the month of July" Pelosi said, adding lawmakers have a "moral obligation" to tackle the current situation in a "non-partisan" way.
