It's been four months since the Senate passed a comprehensive immigration bill.

The House has been slow to do the same. Its own bipartisan gang of eight disintegrated after three republican members walked away from the table. 

Recently, two California Republicans in the House broke ranks and joined 185 Democrats to support an immigration bill — HR 15 — that could give millions of undocumented people a pathway to citizenship.

Congressman David Valadao, who represents the state's 21st district in the central valley, is one of them. He joins the show to explain.
