A proposal by a bi-partisan group of senators known as the Gang of Eight is working its way through the legislative process. Many expect it will pass, perhaps with broad support from both sides of the aisle.
Things are not so clear on the other end of Capitol Hill. The House also has a Gang of Eight, made up of four Democrats and four Republicans, who are trying to craft their version of an immigration reform bill.
According to one member of that gang, John Carter of Texas, they've reached agreement on 95 percent of the issues. So, what's that other five percent, and might it be enough to derail the deal?
Rebecca Kaplan, congressional reporter for the National Journal, joins the show to help answer that question and more.
