Senate Dems Trim $1 Billion From Obama Border Plan
(CNN) - Prospects don't look good for congress to pass an immigration deal before the summer recess.
Tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors from Central America have created a huge backlog in immigration courts.
Legislation to deal with the influx of illegal border crossings hasn't gotten very far.
Republican congressional leaders complain the president won't engage them; and the top senate democrat dismisses their proposals as "crazy.”
Many conservatives in the house oppose the president's $3.7 billion funding request as too expensive.
Democrats in the house support the cash but are against changes to the border policy House Republicans plan to add to the legislation.
