But five members of the U.S. House of Representatives indicated Friday that real legislative reform of the nation's immigration laws likely will have to wait at least until after the November midterm elections and possibly until a new president takes office in 2009.Truer words by a U.S. Representative were never spoken. And Jackson-Lee is correct, the Republican leadership wants to keep the "illegal" immigrant pot boiling like the abortion pot, gay marriage and Second Amendment "rights."
"It is probably doubtful that anything will happen between now and November," said Iowa's 5th District congressman Steve King, a Republican. "Unless something dramatic happens that would cause some kind of major shift, I wouldn't be surprised if there won't be any change until a new president is elected."
U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee, a Texas Democrat, also predicted that immigration legislation is likely to be addressed well after the current Congress ceases to exist.
"I have seen no evidence that the Republican leadership wants this to be resolved anytime soon," Jackson-Lee said. "That is not what they are interested in achieving with this roadshow."

Bullshit roadshow comes to end
Anyone with an ounce of intelligence, or at least some one who reads anything besides his local newspaper, NewsMax, DrudgeReport etc., figured out that the recent Republican hew and cry about "illegal" immigration is bullshit.
