Immigration

FILE- In this Feb. 5, 2013, file photo House Judiciary Committee member Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, center, Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., right, and Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., share a laugh prior to their committee hearing on immigration reform on Capitol Hill in Washington. The question central to immigration legislation is whether the 11 million immigrants already in the US illegally should get a path to citizenship. The answer from a small but growing number of House Republicans is "yes". But but not a "special" path to citizenship, says Chaffetz. "But there has to be a legal, lawful way to go through this process that works, and right now it doesn't." (AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File)
