    Lawmakers looking for solution to immigration issue

    Republicans and Democrats still can't agree on the steps that should be taken to secure the Southern border. It seems the only thing the two parties agree on is that there is a problem, however, what needs to be done, much less how to do it or pay for it is a continuing battle. FOX's Leland Vittert reports.

PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Sen. John McCain says civil rights advocates applauding his work on immigration reform won't be happy with the results.
 
McCain told a town hall meeting in northern Phoenix Monday that he and other lawmakers working on immigration legislation haven't been able to agree on key details and it's unclear when a compromise might be brokered.
 
McCain says the so-called Gang of Eight has agreed on more work visas for workers and protections for illegal immigrants brought to the country as children, but declined to provide specific details.
 
The more than 150 people at the meeting included both proponents and critics of reform. McCain called for civility when the debate occasionally turned into a shouting match.
 
President Barack Obama renewed Monday his call on Congress to pass immigration reform.
