WASHINGTON (AP) - A House committee is holding a hearing on what to do about child immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as lawmakers search for a way forward on immigration in the Republican-led chamber.
Leaders of the House Judiciary Committee are expected to endorse a path to citizenship for at least some of those immigrants during the hearing Tuesday. Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor are working on a bill targeting immigrants brought here as kids.
But they may face opposition from Democrats, who are pushing for a comprehensive solution that deals with all 11 million immigrants here illegally, not just some of them.
The Senate has passed comprehensive legislation offering citizenship to all 11 million, but House Republicans have rejected that bill.
