Ryan: Immigration Law Likely With Border Security

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Rep. Paul Ryan says the Senate's advancement of stronger border security provisions makes it more likely that immigration reform will pass the House and become law.

The House "will do its own legislation," Ryan said, and won't take up the Senate bill if it is passed this week. But the Wisconsin Republican said the stronger border measures the Senate advanced Monday are more in line with the views of House Republicans.

Ryan told CBS' "This Morning" on Tuesday that "the majority of Republicans support the border security."

Monday's Senate advancement of a provision doubling the number of border patrol agents and calling for hundreds of miles of new fencing along the border with Mexico "helps make this final passage even more likely," Ryan said.
