Immigration reform bill will pass, says US treasury secretary

US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said that he was confident that immigration reform would be adopted, despite strong opposition from some Republicans. 

Last week the US Senate passed a controversial immigration bill that would give a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants, and the legislation is now under debate in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.

Conservatives have criticised the Senate version of the overhaul and have vowed any House version would need to have significant differences. But Treasury Secretary Lew, thought the reforms strongly backed by President Barack Obama, would become law.
