Mitch McConnell: 'It's Long Past Due' for Immigration Talks

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is calling on Congress to address immigration issues with bipartisan legislation.

The U.S. apprehended  more than 92,000  migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border last month.

While  speaking with reporters  Thursday, McConnell called the situation a "crisis." He said: "It's long past due for us to sit down in a bipartisan basis and try to fix as much of this problem as we can." McConnell added any immigration legislation should not only touch on border security but also implement changes to asylum laws.

But other Senate Republicans aren't sure that both sides of the aisle can come together to produce an immigration plan.

And previous attempts at bipartisan talks have hit a dead end.

Still,  McConnell said Thursday  he has been talking to Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer "about a variety of different things and we'll see what happens." Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
