Stephen Yale-Loehr was Quote in Epoch Times on the Republican Party's Response to President Obama's State of the Union Address

Stephen Yale-Loehr was quoted in the Epoch Times on January 21, 2015, in an article about the Republican Party's response to President Obama's State of the Union Address. Mr. Yale-Loehr noted that "[Sen. Jeff Sessions’ (R-Ala.) opposition to an immigration reform bill] shows the tension within the Republican Party. You've got some members who want to be accommodating on immigration because they want to attract the Latino vote for 2016, whereas others are firmly anti-immigrant and want to focus solely on strengthening our borders and deporting as many illegal immigrants as possible." He also said that "Sessions could make sure [an immigration reform bill] never gets to the floor. More likely he would amend it to make it what he thinks should be the final bill and see if that gets through the Senate." Mr. Yale-Loehr said that any immigration legislation in the next two years was likely to be in "bite-size packages" and not to resemble the comprehensive Senate bill from 2013.
