'That Bill is Not Going to Move in the House'

With bipartisan support from Senate Republicans, the immigration reform bill passed. But now the bill faces a much steeper climb in order to pass in the House.

House Speaker Boehner is non-committal about the bill. Conservatives are arguing that increased border security should be the initial priority.

Florida's Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen says that we live in "a nation of fairness and opportunity, and that bill strikes that balance," but it "wont' move in the House," even though the House may consider addressing the bill in pieces to smooth out the process.

Rep. Ros-Lehtinen explains the factors she believes will result in the bill failing to pass.
