In light of some recent scandals, immigration reform has taken a back seat on Capitol Hill.

It was back in the spotlight in San Antonio on Saturday as Congressman Joaquin Castro hosted a community forum on the current status of immigration reform.

Castro tried to strike a hopeful tone expressing confidence that immigration reform will happen in some form or fashion.
Castro met with more than one hundred San Antonio residents Saturday to give them a status update on discussions in Washington.

Castro told the audience the senate is working on a bipartisan bill, but it will ultimately be up to the Republican controlled house to make reform a reality.

Right now, one of the biggest sticking points is the issue of a pathway to citizenship.

Many Republicans have called that a deal breaker while Democrats argue it should be the centerpiece of reform.
