Senate immigration bill dead in House, Ros-Lehtinen says



Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen stood in the back of the Senate yesterday as the immigration bill was passed with the help of her former intern, Marco Rubio.

But the veteran Republican from Miami knows the bill has a short shelf life. “I do understand that that bill is not going to move in the House,” she said today on CNN. “We’re hoping that any bill will pass in the House so that we can go into conference with the Senate and out of that conference report, it will be a balanced bill.”
