Proponents of immigration reform have been waiting with bated breath to see whether the topic will be taken up in the House any time soon. It looks like that will not happen, at least not in the month of June. 

According to a memo released last Friday by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), the legislative priorities for the House in June do not include immigration reform. The memo includes plans for three appropriations bills, tax extender bills, job training skills for workers, combating high gas prices, and health care. Reports indicate that immigration reform was “notably absent” from the plan. The immigration reform bill, S-744, passed the Senate nearly a year ago in June, and has been stuck in the GOP-led House ever since.
