House Republicans Grapple With Immigration

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - House Republicans are grappling with how to move forward with immigration legislation.
    
The contentious issue, which the House GOP is to discuss at a special meeting Wednesday, is exposing divisions in the caucus.
    
The question of how to deal with the 11 million people already here illegally is especially tricky. Most Republicans are avoiding talk of deporting those who are here - but many also shy away from embracing citizenship for people who broke the law to be in this country.
    
The Democratic-led Senate passed a comprehensive bill last month to secure the border and offer eventual citizenship to those here illegally.
    
Now it's up to the House to act. But it's not clear how the lawmakers will proceed.
