House of Representatives to Discuss Children of Immigrants

“….the “path to citizenship” for the nation’s undocumented immigrants [will need to be addressed] in order to begin negotiations with the Senate over an immigration bill. President Obama told reporters that he would veto any House bill that didn’t include plans to establish ways for undocumented immigrants to become U.S. citizens or at least to obtain a permanent legal status.”
