Senators agree on immigration overhaul plan
Senators agree on immigration overhaul plan - latimes.com

The bipartisan group's proposal would grant legal status to most of the country's estimated 11 million illegal immigrants.

WASHINGTON A bipartisan group of senators has agreed on a plan to grant legal status to most of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S., which could form the basis for a far-reaching overhaul of immigration laws this year.

The Senate blueprint, drafted during weeks of closed-door meetings by leading senators from each party, will probably set parameters for a contentious legislative battle over the next several months. The eight senators involved intend to release their proposal publicly Monday. A copy was provided to The Times' Washington bureau on Sunday by Senate aides.

The Senate plan is more conservative than President Obama's proposal, which he plans to unveil Tuesday in a speech in Las Vegas. But its provisions for legalizing millions of undocumented immigrants go further than measures that failed to advance in Congress in previous years a reminder of how swiftly the politics of immigration have shifted since Latino voters' strong influence in the November election.

Nothig different really than the last bill introduced under Bush and the same ole promise of sealing the border promise with amnesty as i the 80's bill. its just a buy votes at expense of put people who broke our laws to front of the immagration line of those waiting.
