Will Immigration Reform Sink or Swim in House?

Will Immigration Reform Sink or Swim in House? Play

June 28 (Bloomberg) -- After intense lobbying by the business community, a sweeping immigration bill cleared the Senate, but will the debate end in the House? On "Capitol Gains" airing Sunday, host Peter Cook talks with the House GOP's point man on immigration, Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA). Goodlatte tell Cook the Senate's immigration bill is "not the answer" because of the way it handles the 11 million undocumented immigrants already in the country. “We disagree with many of the provisions in the Senate bill, but we definitely agree that we have a broken immigration system," Goodlatte tells Cook. "So rather than saying we want to kill the Senate bill, what we want to say is we want to write a better bill and then work out the differences with the Senate in conference. That is what I hope to accomplish." (Source: Bloomberg)
