Members of Congress who attended John Boehner’s Republican conference retreat and the ensuing discussion about immigration policy say that, despite Boehner’s attempt to sway his fellow Republicans into voting for immigration reform, the Speaker of the House failed miserably.

Boehner has been working feverishly to keep the issue alive after facing constant pressure from the hotel, tech, construction, and restaurant industries. They all want to keep their low-wage workers and continue to fatten profits. You see, legalizing millions of illegal immigrants is a much cheaper prospect than raising wages to draw more workers.

And Boehner, ever the compliant politician, would like to keep the dollars that these industries contribute to Republican campaign funds.

On tap for discussion tonight with Elizabeth Letchworth, our Capitol Hill Insider.
