Obama, GOP prepare to battle over immigration reform

President Obama is doubling down on immigration.

"I indicated to (House) Speaker (John) Boehner several months ago that if in fact Congress failed to act I would use all the lawful authority that I possess to try and make the system work better. And that's gonna happen, that's gonna happen before the end of the year," said Obama.

Congressional Republicans are vowing to fight President Barack Obama's plan to make immigration changes through executive action, but they are struggling with how to do that without triggering another government shutdown.

OutFront, Jose Antonio Vargas is a Pulitzer prize-winning journalist who revealed and chronicled his own life as an undocumented immigrant in America and Derrick Morgan who served as special counsel to vice president Dick Cheney.
