WASHINGTON (AP) - The immigration debate is shifting to the Republican-led House, where lawmakers have shown little appetite for the comprehensive approach their Senate colleagues embraced last week.

The Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said Sunday that any attempt at comprehensive immigration legislation cannot offer a, quote, “special pathway to citizenship” for those in the United States illegally.

Democrats have called that component a deal-breaker.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the Virginia Republican who leads the House Judiciary Committee, is suggesting a pathway to legal standing, similar to immigrants who have green cards.

Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York calls that proposal unacceptable and says, quote, “no Democrat will vote for any bill without a path to citizenship.”

Goodlatte spoke to CNN and Schumer was interviewed on Fox News.
