Republican Ryan says U.S. immigration bill 'in doubt' this year

Rep. Ryan departs after a news conference in WashingtonBy Margaret Chadbourn WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Paul Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican congressman and key player in the immigration reform debate, on Sunday said that it is uncertain whether or not a broad immigration bill will reach President Barack Obama’s desk by the end of the year. Immigration reform legislation, which the Senate has already passed, has stalled in the Republican-controlled House. Asked in an interview that aired on ABC’s “This Week” if Obama would get a bill to sign this year, Ryan replied: “I really don’t know the answer to that question. That’s clearly in doubt.” Last June, the U.S. Senate passed a comprehensive bill that would provide a path to citizenship for immigrants living in the U.S. illegally and tighten border security.
