In this Jan. 29, 2013, file photo, President Barack Obama speaks about immigration reform Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2013, at Del Sol High School in Las Vegas. The immigration debate is threatening to split the Republican Party, pitting those who focus mainly on presidential elections against those who care mostly about congressional races. Granting illegal residents a path to citizenship, which critics call "amnesty," is deeply unpopular in many House Republicans' districts. However, Obama wants such a pathway.
