Immigration deadlock

A demonstrator is arrested in front of the White House on Thursday, where faith leaders and activists protested to ask President Barack Obama to modify his deportation policies.

Meanwhile, with the House minutes from a vote on legislation to deal with the immigration surge on the U.S.-Mexico border, and hours from scheduled adjournment for the summer, a tea party revolt left House Speaker John Boehner with no choice but to pull his $659 million border bill from the floor.

Boehner took the unusual step of delaying Congress’ summer recess, which had been scheduled to begin today, and House Republicans agreed to meet again this morning to see if they could find a bill that could pass. A different bill in the Senate also failed on a procedural vote.
