GOP leaders warn about Obamacare-like immigration

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans leaders are warning about enacting an 'Obamacare-like' immigration bill.

In a statement after a closed-door meeting of GOP rank and file, the leaders soundly rejected the bipartisan Senate bill that includes a path to citizenship and increased border security. They called that legislation flawed.

Speaker John Boehner and other leaders said the House would take a step-by-step approach to rewriting the nation's immigration laws. They said Obama's recent decision to delay an employer requirement in the health care bill raised concerns among the American people that the administration cannot be trusted to secure the border and enforce the law.
