SOURCES: BOEHNER TELLS TEXAS BUSINESS INTERESTS THAT IMMIGRATION REFORM VOTES WILL BE HELD AFTER FILING DEADLINES HAVE PASSED

Fear of Tea Party challenges has the Speaker holding off for now, sources say

An aggressive timeline for passing comprehensive immigration reform may become a reality based on two significant developments on Capitol Hill.

One of them is that House Speaker John Boehner has hired an Immigration Policy Director who has deep experience in overhaul efforts. The other is that in recent weeks, various Texas business interests have told Quorum Report that Boehner has been telling them that he will start holding immigration votes not long after the filing deadline has passed. This, of course, runs counter to conventional wisdom that says immigration votes in the House will have to wait until 2014.

Well, the House is about to adjourn for the year so it would have to wait until 2014.

And after this vote today, there will be more challengers to the GOP-e candidates filing.

The House adjourned today.

Filing deadlines have passed in most states, so it's unlikely there will be more challengers.

Big money donors - the people the folks in Washington REALLY represent - want this done and by golly it WILL be done!
