House searches for a way forward on immigration reform
WASHINGTON — At the Capitol Wednesday families split apart by deportation called on Congress to fix the nation’s immigration problems.
Many are pinning their hopes to a bipartisan bill passed last month by the Senate.
It bolsters border security and offers a shot at citizenship for some of this country’s eleven million undocumented immigrants, but House Republicans have already declared the plan “dead on arrival”.
“There is absolutely no chance that the Senate bill passes the House of Representatives. It’s a good start. There’s a lot of good things in the Senate bill, but we need to make it stronger,” said Idaho’s Representative Raul Labrador.
