(ABC Univision) House Democrats made it clear on Tuesday that they won’t support any major immigration overhaul that does not include a pathway to citizenship.
Party members in the lower chamber this morning huddled with the four Democrats on the so-called “Gang of Eight” that helped write the Senate’s bill. After the meeting, House Democrats said that the path to citizenship is the one thing they won’t sacrifice for votes on an immigration package.
“You must include a pathway to citizenship,” Rep. Xavier Becerra (Calif.), the chairman of the House Democratic caucus, told reporters after the meeting. “Democrats will make that very clear to Republicans.”
