Jorge Ramos Confronts Boehner for Playing Obamacare Card on Immigration

Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos confronted John Boehner at a press conference today about why the House has stalled for a year on immigration reform, and called him out for invoking Obamacare as a reason they haven’t gotten it done yet.

Boehner insisted he’s not blocking immigration reform, it’s just that the president “continues to ignore Obamacare, his own law,” and so he “reduces the confidence” of people who would otherwise like immigration reform. Ramos responded, “What does Obamacare have to do with immigration reform?”

He challenged Boehner on how the House could do it if they really wanted to, but they haven’t because Boehner hasn’t brought it to a vote. Boehner simply answered, “I appreciate your opinion. Thank you.”

Ramos also grilled Harry Reid about the Senate giving families “false hope” that immigration reform will get done soon.
