Special House committee delays immigration reform

House Republican leaders are delaying consideration of a comprehensive immigration bill until the 2013 legislative session.

Rep. Harry Warren, a committee co-chairman, said the House select committee wants to  wait for the U.S. Supreme Court to rule on the constitutionality of other state's immigration legislation before taking any action. 

The announcement came at the end of an intense, often personal two-hour public hearing that featured testimony from undocumented immigrants and ardent illegal immigration foes. Check back later for more details.
