Gang Of Eight Aiming To Unveil Immigration Reform Bill Thursday
Admin posted a topic in Dream Act NewsThe Senate’s Gang of Eight is aiming to release comprehensive immigration reform legislation on Thursday, according to Senate sources. A member of the group said the bill is virtually complete and the plan is to roll it out this week, but he warned it could slip into next week. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), a leading member of the group, confirmed the members are hoping to unveil the legislation before lawmakers leave town for the weekend. “We’re shooting for that kind of progress,” he said. One of the last questions to be resolved was over how to handle immigrant agricultural workers. The farm industry and unions were split over the issues of wages and visas. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who has taken the lead on negotiating agricultural visas, said Tuesday a tentative deal had been reached. “There’s a tentative agreement on a number of things, and we’re waiting to see if it can get wrapped up,” she told reporters outside the Senate chamber.
