WASHINGTON (AP) -- The focus is on the House after the Senate passed historic immigration legislation that would provide a path to citizenship for 11 million immigrants in the country illegally.
Prospects for the bill's future are highly uncertain. Conservatives hold great sway in the House and many oppose citizenship for those who entered the country illegally or overstayed their visas.
Still others would prefer to address the immigration issue piece by piece, rather than attempt a comprehensive bill like the Senate produced Thursday.
House Speaker John Boehner made clear ahead of the Senate's action that the House would proceed in its own way, not simply accept the Senate bill.
President Barack Obama called on the House to act, a plea echoed by outside advocates and Senate supporters of the bill.
