Votes are set Thursday in both the GOP-led House and Democratic-controlled Senate on bills addressing the young migrants seeking refuge. But the competing bills have little chance of being reconciled.
Congress leaves some significant business unfinished as it goes on break. But the talk of Washington and beyond is Wednesday's vote by House republicans to authorize a lawsuit against President Obama.
The Senate is expected to pass the measure this week. It would expand government programs and provide funds for vets who are unable to access VA services to see private doctors.
House Republicans say that the president has overstepped the bounds of his executive authority. President Obama dismissed the move as a "political stunt."
To learn more about the new legislation aimed at sexual assault on campuses, Audie Cornish speaks with two of the bill's co-sponsors, Sen. Claire McCaskill and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.
