Congress Dragging Its Feet on Immigration Reform

Hosted by

As Congress returns from its August recess, a CNN poll finds that 76 percent of Americans are angry about the way the country's being run. The number planning to back a challenger in November's elections is higher than it was in 1994, when the Republicans took control from the Democrats.  President Bush made immigration reform a priority for this year, and Republicans held 20 hearings last month all over the country.  So, why has it dropped off their agenda?  Will the GOP or the Democrats take the heat for a lack of action next time voters go to the polls?
