Immigration reform: dead. That’s Jim Manley, a former aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, writing in The Wall Street Journal about the topic’s chances in Congress after Cantor’s loss. “The votes have been there for months to pass immigration reform, if House Speaker John Boehner were willing to take legislation to the floor. Now, however, immigration reform is dead for the year – and Republicans killed it.” Manley, a Democrat, is hardly alone in his prediction. “I don’t think you’re going to be hearing anybody else talk about immigration reform anytime soon,” GOP strategist Ford O’Connell told the Hill.
