Faster deportations? A possible border crisis deal

Faster deportations? A possible border crisis deal story image

WASHINGTON (AP) - Outlines of a possible compromise that would more quickly deport minors arriving from Central America have emerged as part of President Barack Obama's $3.7 billion emergency request to address the immigration crisis on the nation's southern border.

Republicans have demanded speedier deportations, which the White House initially had supported but left out of its proposal after complaints from immigrant advocates and some Democrats. Today, the top House and Senate Democrats pointedly left the door open to them, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi saying "it's not a deal-breaker," while Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said, "Let's see what comes to the floor."

But opposition arose late in the day from key Democratic senators, suggesting battles ahead before any deal can be struck.
