Senators are stymied over passing a bill to deal with the immigration surge that’s led to tens of thousands of young migrants coming across the border. House and Senate leaders also continue to bicker over the problem and how to solve it.  Dairy industry leaders are disappointed because that seems the only opening for passing immigration legislation this year.  South Dakota Dairy Producers Executive Director Roger Scheibe says Congress needs to solve the problem.

Scheibe says it doesn’t have to be a complicated process to find a workable immigration solution.

Both the Democrat and Republican Senate leaders continue to blame each other for failure to pass a border bill while House Speaker John Boehner says he won’t take up the Senate immigration reform bill in any fashion.
