McCain, Flake to hold "immigration conversation"

By Ina Ronquillo. CREATED Aug 27, 2013

MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake are set to participate in an "immigration conversation" in Mesa sponsored by the Arizona Republic.
   
Tuesday's event features two of the "Gang of Eight" who pushed a comprehensive immigration reform bill through the Senate earlier this year. The Republicans have spent part of the congressional summer recess trying to drum up public support for the plan that has stalled in the House.
   
Ariz. Rep. Paul Gosar says their efforts are going nowhere in the GOP-controlled House. He says there's no way the House will pass a bill like the Senate version that includes a path to citizenship for the 11 million people in the country without proper documentation. The House instead will take up small immigration bills separately, starting with securing the border.
