DETAILS: Bipartisan Group of Senators Reach Deal on Sweeping Immigration Reform
A bipartisan group of senators is set to announce the framework for a deal that could bring sweeping changes to our immigration laws.
According to sources, the deal has four main goals. They are:
- Establishing a path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants who are already living here.
- Reforming the legal immigration system.
- Establishing an employment verification program to prevent employers from hiring illegal immigrants.
- Establishing an agricultural worker program.
