A divide US House of Representatives has decided to abandon a vote on a bill which would have addressed the immigration crisis.

US House Speaker John Boehner cancelled a vote on legislation which would have provided nearly $700 million to help address our nation's immigration crisis with Mexico.

This lack of action places GOP leaders in the embarrassing position of having demanded quick action by Obama to deal with the problem of tens of thousands of children arriving from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, only to refuse these funds necessary to implement this action.
