President Barack Obama speaks about immigration reform in the East Room of the White House in Washington, D.C., October 24, 2013.

President Obama is making a push to get immigration reform passed by the end of the year. The Senate passed a bill in June to beef up border security and provide a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants, but the measure hasn't been brought to a vote in the House. Meanwhile some House Republicans are offering their own, more narrow immigration bills. We discuss the politics of immigration and the chances that a reform bill will get passed.
