Some Democratic lawmakers are blaming Rahm Emanuel, White House chief of staff, for an immigration overhaul that fizzled this year, according to a latimes.com report.

"There's always a sense that no matter how hard we work, to get through the White House, we have to get through Rahm," said U.S. Rep. Raul M. Grijalva, D-Ariz.

"I would like immigration not to be part of the chief of staff's portfolio. It would make our ability to convince and access decision-makers in the White House a lot easier," he added.

"It's going to be much easier for this issue to move after Rahm Emanuel leaves the White House," said Simon Rosenberg, president of the New Democratic Network, a think tank.
