REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – The new year could mean new hope for immigration reform.

Despite opposition from conservative republicans, House Speaker John Boehner has hinted that he may support a series of limited changes to America’s immigration laws.

According to a New York Times report, Boehner’s aides say the House Speaker is committed to what he calls ‘step-by-step approaches to reform immigration laws’, which they have declined to specify for now.

Other House republicans believe supporting immigration reform would increase votes from immigrants in the 2016 presidential election.
