“Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is signaling he will move to wrap up the Senate's immigration bill this week, warning senators against slow-walking the debate.
"Senators have had plenty of time to prepare. There's no reason why we should not reach a bipartisan solution this week," McConnell said from the Senate floor.
He added that he made a commitment to hold an immigration debate "this week."
"I've lived up to my commitment. I hope everyone will cooperate so this opportunity does not go to waste," he said.
McConnell's comments are the clearest indication yet that the GOP leader does not intend to let the immigration fight linger over the upcoming weeklong Presidents Day recess.
In a deal to end the three-day government shutdown in January, McConnell promised to turn to the immigration debate after Feb. 8. His public remarks did not include a time limit for how long he would keep a bill on the floor.”
