House Republican leaders are scaling back their border control bill. The new version includes $659-million to address the youth immigration crisis with humanitarian aid and beefed-up border security. The amount is significantly less than the $1-billion price tag that was being considered last week. President Barack Obama is seeking over $3-billion to fix the problem. Some Republicans are concerned the bill opens the door for amnesty. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says the Democratic-controlled Senate is interested in broader immigration reform. House Speaker John Boehner says such a bill will not make it through the GOP-dominated House. The impasse may mean nothing gets done soon. Congress is taking a break at the end of this week.
