Undocumented immigrants hopeful reform is near

The U.S. may be inching its way toward comprehensive immigration reform.

President Obama is expected to endorse a set of proposals worked out by a bi-partisan group of senators.

The plan would create a path to citizenship for 11-million illegal immigrants but only after the borders are secured.

Undocumented workers would be able to stay after they register with the government, pass a background check, pay fines and back taxes and learn English.

U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) says he supports the proposals because it would take families out of the shadows.

Conservative opponents say the plan amounts to nothing more than amnesty.

Republicans and democrats in the house are said to be working on an immigration bill.

They may release their proposals as early as this week.

    Yes I have a comment
    you say that there are already 11 million illegal out there -that want to drive
    these people must pass a background check-give me a break-pay fines and back taxes
    where are you going to get this money in back taxes if these people already are driving on the roads with no license and no insurance when the hard working person has been paying for there insurance in our policy's when we pay our car insurance-what if these people are not working -where is the money going to be coming –
    tell the goverment that if this will take families out of the shadows -tell all of the goverments employees to take a cut in pay for one year and we will have the money-all government employees get nice raises while other people are likely to get 1 %

    first of all you are not paying for the immigrants insurance, they are able to get insurance but with a higher premium! get your facts rights. they drive without licenses because they have to go to work to get money. they dont pay taxes because they get pay lower than the minimum wage for that same reason that they are not able to do their taxes because there are no tin number given to them.

    all government people should take pay cuts. every other middle and lower class did to help out the economy, why cant they?

      Your an idiot. Laws mean nothing to them. They drive because their wetback a s s e s think they should. Then they send the money back to Mexico. Deport them all in one big round up. Put a fee of $50 a head on them to be turned in. Of of this rewarding to someone who is here illegally.

    Because they have violated our laws and have no right to be here. Simple as that.
