Wisconsin Congressman Ryan: House to craft own immigration reform bill

Representative Paul Ryan speaks to the media on Capitol Hill

WASHINGTON D.C. (WTAQ) - Janesville House Republican Paul Ryan says the U.S. Senate has made it easier for all sides to agree on a new immigration reform law.

Monday, the Senate voted to advance an amendment that would double the numbers of Border Patrol agents, and create hundreds of miles of new fencing at the U.S.-Mexican border.

Ryan tells “CBS This Morning” that the House will craft its own immigration reform package – and it will not take up the Senate bill if it’s passed this week.

However, Ryan said most Republicans in his chamber to support the stronger border provisions endorsed by the Senate. He says they’re generally more in line with the views of the majority Republicans in the House and it will help, “make this final passage even more likely.”
