House Speaker John Boehner (R,OH) says that most likely a sweeping immigration reform bill will not be passed in 2014 because of President Obama's need to re-establish trust among Republican members of Congress, according to Global Times, Feb. 6, 2014. Boehner also expressed doubts as to the Obama Administration's ability to enforce immigration laws or to carry out immigration laws as intended.

Boehner cited his perception of Obama's unwillingness to collaborate with Republicans "on the smallest of things" as his rationale for not supporting Obama on a major piece of legislation such as a sweeping immigration reform bill. Senator Mitch McConnell (R,KY) also threw up roadblocks in the way of passage of the immigration reform bill, saying that he saw the differences between House Democrats and Republicans as an "irresolvable conflict."

White House spokesperson Jay Carney still held out hope that the immigration bill would be passed soon, stating:

"We remain optimistic about the prospects for comprehensive immigration reform in 2014."
