California Congressman Kevin McCarthy ascended to the role of House Majority Leader today having won his race for the second highest ranking position in Republican Leadership.  The soon-to-be former House Majority Whip defeated Idaho Congressman Raul Labrador in a secret ballot election.  McCarthy will continue to serve in his position as House Majority Whip until August 1 when he will assume his new leadership role.

Many members of the House on both sides of the aisle have expressed the need to pass legislation fixing our broken immigration system. While the Senate took action by passing S. 744, the House has yet to pass a single bill to reform our immigration system. With 22 legislative days remaining until the House adjourns for its August recess, the urgency for action mounts as a key window for action closes.
