Hopes for US immigration reform diminish

With House of Representatives refusing to take up bill, deportations continue apace.

    Hopes for a new immigration law in the U.S. are  dimming with leaders of the Republican controlled House of Representatives refusing to take up the bill adopted by the Senate.
