House GOP cancels vote on immigration bill

Posted: Updated:

Washington (CNN) -- On the last day before summer recess, dysfunction reigned in Congress.

House Republicans canceled a vote on their $659 million emergency response to the border influx from Central America overwhelming immigration resources, unable to agree among themselves about what to do.

Meanwhile, the fate of a separate $2.7 billion Senate measure remained uncertain, with increased doubts that the Democratic majority will push for a final vote after the failure of the House to act.

Now politicians go home for five weeks to campaign for the November congressional elections without sending President Barack Obama legislation to address what both parties agree is a humanitarian crisis at the southern border.
