Politico has a report on Congressman Steve King's on-going efforts to pressure Republicans to stand firm against any immigration reform that would confer legal status on undocumented immigrants. The leadership of the House would prefer that Republicans lie low on the issue and work it out behind closed doors. Unless Speaker Boehner figures out what it is he wants to say on the issue, King's will be the only voice defining the GOP's stance on immigration reform. King may be an outlier, but he is only problematic because of the vacuum of leadership in the GOP House caucus on the issue.
