Pelosi holds little hope for immigration reform

Created: 06/28/2014 9:28 PM WHEC.com

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says she sees little hope for comprehensive immigration reform this year.
 
The California Democrat said following Saturday's visit to a Border Patrol facility in Brownsville, Texas, where unaccompanied children are being held that she was more optimistic a few days ago. She said Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner gives little reason to be hopeful now, but didn't elaborate.
 
More than 52,000 unaccompanied children, most from Central America, have been apprehended entering the U.S. illegally since October. It has created what President Barack Obama called an "urgent humanitarian situation."
 
Pelosi said Congress needs to put politics aside in addressing the child immigrants, adding that, "the fact is these are children, children and families. We have a moral responsibility to address this in a dignified way."
