Today, Washington is back to work for the first full week since the government shutdown.
Now that there's at least a temporary solution to the budget and debt crises, immigration reform advocates are pushing hard for a vote on immigration reform this year.
Prior to the government shutdown, the Senate passed legislation to overhaul border security, require employer verification of workers' status and create a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.
House Republicans decided to tackle smaller pieces of immigration legislation, and the House's so-called "Gang of Eight" congresspeople working on legislation has dwindled to just five members.
Joining us now for more on this is House member Mark Takano, a Democrat from Riverside, and for the view from the other side of the aisle, we're joined by Republican Congressman Jeff Denham of California's Central Valley.
