House Not Accepting Senate Bill on Immigration Reform

House Republicans are taking their own step-by-step approach on immigration.

After gathering to figure out a way to move forward, lawmakers say there is consensus they will not pass a single sweeping bill.

Instead, they are looking at series of smaller bills, arguing the Obama Administration can’t be trusted to enforce the border security part of one massive law. They say securing the border is the top priority.

However, there was no agreement on what to do about the 11 million immigrants illegally in the U.S.

House legislation won’t happen any time soon since Republicans say they are going to take their time and don’t expect to have a vote until after the August recess.
