Immigration now House's battle

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (KNOE 8 News/AP) -House Speaker John Boehner says he hopes an immigration bill in the House will be bipartisan, but he says it will have majority support among Republicans.

The immigration bill passed by the Senate yesterday calls for securing the U.S.-Mexico border with more agents and fencing, but would also give millions of people living in the U.S. illegally the opportunity to become U.S. citizens.

Boehner hasn't said if there are circumstances under which he could support a pathway to citizenship.
