Ashley Amador (L) ., Daysis Moraga and Federico Paseiro join together in front of the office of Sen. Maro Rubio (R-FL) to keep pressure on him and the others working on immigration reform on June 13, 2013 in Doral, Florida. The group of protesters included DREAMer moms (mothers of undocumented immigrant youth).

The bipartisan Gang of Seven in the House has lost two more members. Republican representatives Sam Johnson and John Carter — both of Texas — announced they were resigning from the group.

Another Republican, Raul Labrador of Idaho, left the group in June. This comes after four years of trying to hammer out an agreement in the House. For more we're joined now by Fawn Johnson of National Journal.
