Pelosi visits border facility, says immigration reform unlikely    By MAYA SRIKRISHNAN   Los Angeles TimesJune 28, 2014

Pelosi and three other Democratic members of the House_Filemon Vela and Ruben Hinojosa of Texas and Steven Horsford of Nevada_also met with Border Patrol agents to discuss the influx of unaccompanied children coming across the border from Central America.
"The humanitarian crisis unfolding across our nation's southern border demands Congress come together and find thoughtful, compassionate and bipartisan solutions," Pelosi said at a televised news conference after the tour. "We must also work to address the root causes of the problem."
Pelosi said a few days ago she was more optimistic about immigration reform, but said now Republican House Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio "gives us no reason to be hopeful."
An estimated 52,000 unaccompanied youths from Central America have been caught along the Southwest's border with Mexico since October, almost double last year's total. Of that, more than two-thirds made the crossing into the Rio Grande Valley near the southern tip of Texas.
