//News//Outline of immigration reform bill emerges

Less than a week before debates on immigration reform start in the Senate, a possible outline of the proposed immigration bill has emerged.

Republican Senator Arlen Specter said the proposed bill would delay implementation of a guest-worker program and leave out any amnesty program for illegal immigrants until the US strengthens its borders and implement electronic security measures to counter identity fraud.

"We have come to an agreement on what we have called a, quote, 'grand bargain,' unquote, which is the outline of an immigration bill," Specter told AFP.

The final text of the proposed bill is still being worked out.

Senate deliberations on the proposed immigration reform act is expected to start on Monday, May 14.
