WASHINGTON
House Democrats have unveiled an immigration bill that includes a path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants living here illegally and tightens border security.

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and more than a dozen Democrats told reporters Wednesday that they were ready to move on the legislation.

Prospects are highly uncertain for anything as contentious as immigration amid the budget standoff that has paralyzed Congress.

Democrats said they were hopeful that despite the partisan dysfunction, Republicans and Democrats could come together on immigration. The Senate passed a comprehensive bill in June, but the House has not acted on a handful of smaller bills from the Judiciary committee.
