House Speaker John Boehner reportedly insisted Tuesday there is no “conspiracy” to push an immigration bill through the House – but a top Democrat suggested not only is there a deal in the works, it’s an open secret.
The conflicting messages further blurred the status of immigration talks on Capitol Hill.
Boehner just two months ago appeared to slam the brakes on negotiations altogether, blaming the administration’s failure to enforce existing immigration laws. But GOP leaders, including Boehner, have signaled lately they’re at least interested in bringing back a bill.
