Immigration reform trying to hurdle flawed health care rollout

Immigration reform could be negatively impacted by the flawed rollout of the Affordable Care Act, according to Politico.

"There's a loss of confidence in the government's ability," former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said. "Clearly, the last few months, our experience with Affordable Care Act does not help when you look at other big things like immigration reform."

The Senate's version would expand the nation's temporary worker program, increase border security and create legalization pathways for the estimated 11 million people who are in the country illegally. Under the legislation, employers would need to check their employees immigration status through E-Verify, an internet-based system that has been criticized as unreliable.

But the legislation remains stalled in the House, and Speaker John Boehner hasn't said when it will come to the floor.
