//News// Senator pledges May 14 start for immigration debate

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said immigration debates will start on Monday, according to a report by the Washington Times.

Reid, who earlier accused Republicans of delaying the immigration debate, pledged that the immigration debate will start on Monday. The senator is reportedly eyeing a parliamentary maneuver that will force the immigration debate on the Senate floor.

Democrat Sen. Edward M. Kennedy is leading a team composed of White House executives and Republican legislators to come up with a comprehensive immigration reform bill. Talks have been held mostly in closed quarters, and there are no signs that a bill is already ready.

Meanwhile a group composed of Christian leaders in the U.S. have started a campaign in support of immigration reform in the country. The group is composed of more than 100 members from evangelical, mainline Protestant, Roman Catholic, Hispanic and black religious and social-service groups and activists.
