(LAS VEGAS SUN) Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid predicted Tuesday that Congress will pass an overhaul of the nation’s immigration system sometime next year.

“I feel positive we will get an immigration bill passed,” the Nevada Democrat said in an interview with the Sun’s editorial board Tuesday.

Both Reid and Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., voted in the Senate for an immigration bill that requires more spending for Border Patrol activities and gives people in the United States illegally a pathway to citizenship. But the House of Representatives has taken no action on that bill, nor have they delivered comprehensive immigration proposals of their own.
