(CNN) – Despite signs from House Republicans they'll oppose any immigration measure that includes a pathway to citizenship, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi remained optimistic Tuesday that a bill overhauling the nation's immigration laws could pass the lower chamber.

Speaking on CNN's "New Day," the California Democrat said Republicans looking to improve their electoral outlook among Latino voters will ultimately line up behind a bill that creates a fairer system for people who want to come to the United States.
