Senators Develop Bipartisan Immigration Plan

WASHINGTON -- Two senators have hammered out a bipartisan "comprehensive, detailed blueprint" to overhaul immigration policy, and their plan includes a pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants now in the United States.

Democrat Chuck Schumer of New York tells NBC's "Meet the Press" that he's developed the plan with South Carolina Republican Lindsay Graham.

The plan calls for developing a secure document to assure employers they're hiring people authorized to work in the country, and allowing legal immigration for needed workers at all skill levels.

The path to citizenship would require immigrants to learn English, go to the back of the visa line, have a job and not commit crimes.

House Speaker John Boehner says it's time to address immigration policy, but won't commit to the citizenship issue.
