McConnell pledges full immigration debate

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday he will ignite another massive immigration debate — the fourth in the past 12 years — in coming weeks, as he sought to convince Democrats to end a filibuster that has shut the government down.

As the shutdown entered its third day, Mr. McConnell was hoping to give enough assurances on immigration, without committing to passing a specific bill.

Democrats have said they won’t approve government funding until they have guarantees on immigration. They are looking for a bill that would grant citizenship rights to millions of illegal immigrants.

Mr. McConnell said that debate can’t happen while the government is shut down, but promised it soon thereafter.
