    As House Republicans huddle inside Wednesday to address how to proceed on immigration reform, an audience of 500 made up of both Latino voters and DREAMers – immigrants who entered the country illegally as children – will be gathering outside the Capitol to warn the GOP that ignoring their pleas will have electoral repercussions. "They are missing the opportunity to be part of history," says Maria Castro, 19.

    Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Monday said enhancements in border security must be “in place” before the process of granting legal status to 11 million illegal immigrants begins, laying down a new marker in the debate over immigration reform. “The House is going to do its own job on developing an immigration bill,” Boehner said Monday after an event on the Capitol steps on student loans. “But it’s real clear, from everything that I’ve seen and read over the last couple of weeks, that the American people expect that we’ll have strong border security in place before we begin the...
