New deal on Immigration reform to be announced soon...

Republican and Democratic senators appeared to be closing in on a compromise deal on immigration to grant quick legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants while fortifying U.S. borders against new ones.

Details being leaked out are sketchy, but the deal involves setting up a system of points to enable undocumented immigrants present in the US before Jan 1 2007, to embark on a path to citizenship.

"Among the final sticking points was a stubborn dispute over how much family ties and other criteria should count toward green cards under a new "point system." The plan prioritizes advanced skills and education levels for future immigrants."
