Immigration Shaping Up As A Leading Election Issue

Updated: Monday, August 25 2014, 07:03 AM CDT
YORK, Pa. (AP) -- Republican Congressman Scott Perry says immigration has become a top concern for voters in his southeast Pennsylvania district in light of the crisis of Central American children on the Texas border. He says voters are very upset -- even more than about the health care law or the deficit.

It's the same story around the country, as polls show the crisis of unaccompanied minors at the border has made immigration a key issue with midterm elections approaching.
 
How the issue plays out this fall depends both on what happens in South Texas -- where border arrivals have declined in the summer heat, but could rise again -- and in Washington, where President Barack Obama is looking at extending deportation protections to millions more already living in this country illegally.
