Did Valerie Jarrett just disclose every conservatives worst fear; a disheartened Speaker John Boehner commiserating behind the scenes with President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party on the difficulties he faces from his own party in the pursuit of amnesty?

Speaking at the elite invitation-only SkyBridge Alternatives Conference in Las Vegas, the president’s senior adviser said a “frustrated” Boehner pledged to help “get something done” this year on immigration reform.

“I think we have a window this summer, between now and August, to get something done,” Jarrett told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “We have a commitment from Speaker Boehner, who’s very frustrated with his caucus.”

The Wall Street Journal reported in April that Boehner said he was “hell-bent on getting this done this year” while speaking at a Las Vegas fundraiser.

Jarrett said Americans “favor” immigration reform, and that it would easily pass in the Republican-controlled House if put up for a vote.

“We haven’t been able to find that many people who aren’t in support of it,” she said. “This is an opportunity that we should seize…  The Senate bill would pass today in the House.”

The long-time friend of the Obamas said the White House would also support a piecemeal approach, which some Republicans have promoted.

“There’s a lot of ways to skin a cat,” she said. “I feel very encouraged about immigration reform. I think you’re going to see mounting pressure.”

According to Breitbart News, National Association of Manufacturers CEO Jay Timmons and Chamber of Commerce CEO Tom Donohue have suggested that immigration reform could be the “final act” of the lame-duck session.
