Amnesty vs Citizenship Path in House Plan?


House Republican leaders are laying out a blueprint for immigration reform, trying to gain support from other GOP House members.

The guideline includes a pathway to legal status for adults who are living here illegally, but not the pathway to citizenship, which many Democrats want.

The GOP plan does include, however, a citizenship plan for kids brought to the United States illegally by their parents.

In an interview on CNN, President Barack Obama hinted Friday he may be open to working with Republicans on an immigration deal, even if it doesn't include a pathway to citizenship for illegal adults.

How is amnesty different from a pathway to citizenship? Derrick Morgan, with the Heritage Foundation, answers this and more on CBN Newswatch, Jan. 31.
