A week before Congress leaves for its five-week recess, the House and Senate are introducing dueling immigration plans.

Senate Democrats are calling for $2.7 billion to address the influx of unaccompanied Central American migrants crossing the border. Republicans in the House are pushing for an amendment to the 2008 law on the processing of migrants from non-contiguous states.

ABC News political director Rick Klein joins Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson to discuss the dueling plans. He says Congress is not likely to reach an agreement before the recess.
