Rep. Charlie Dent Discusses How House Will Approach Immigration Bill

DENT [House Republicans, Congressman] : And even if we did have 218 Republican votes in the House for such a bill, you know, to what end, I mean, 'cause the Senate wouldn't take it up. So bottom line is the only path forward is a bipartisan one on the DREAMers and border security.

KELLY [NPR Host]: Congressman, is it a given to you that there needs to be a big, sweeping immigration bill that takes on all of this at once, or might there be some value to just working on DACA, getting that passed and then turning attention to the other outstanding issues?
Hi everyone! What does "a given" mean? :confused:
