Get your daily scoop of what State of the Union is watching today, July 11, 2014.
1. Three titans scold Congress. Three of the country's biggest business moguls joined forces to push Congress for immigration reform. In a New York Times editorial, Warren Buffett, Sheldon Adelson and Bill Gates said there is no excuse for inaction. "It's time for the House to draft and pass a bill that reflects both our country's humanity and its self-interest," they wrote. They also said passage of comprehensive immigration reform legislation would lift the country's spirits which could in turn, improve the economy. Adelson, a casino magnet and a top Republican Party donor, Buffett, the CEO of Berskhire Hathway and a supporter of President Obama, and Gates, the founder of Microsoft, also chided Congress for its role in Washington's constant gridlock. "It's time for 535 of American's citizens to remember what they owe to the 318 million who employ them," they wrote. We discuss the current border crisis and prospects for immigration reform with Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, and four members of the House Sunday on State of the Union.
Crisis at the border runs into gridlock in Washington. Obama administration officials warn the flood of Central American children entering the U.S. is only going to get worse unless Congress gives them more money. But Sen. John McCain has his own plan to help thousands of children in limbo, and joins us from the border state of Arizona.
And what’s it like to witness the flood of child immigrants first-hand? Border patrol agent Chris Cabrera is live from the Rio Grande Valley border in Texas with details.
Plus, four powerful members of the House of Representatives on why the House won’t take up comprehensive immigration reform this year, and why Speaker John Boehner is suing the President. Republican Reps. Marsha Blackburn and Aaron Schock join Democratic Reps. Donna Edwards and Beto O’Rourke.
Watch Sunday 9am and Noon Eastern on CNN.
