The legislation by a bipartisan group of senators would give the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the United States illegally a way to obtain legal status and eventually become U.S. citizens … [T]hose who entered after the December 2011 cut-off date would be forced to go back to their country of origin … The lawmakers … are aiming to unveil their bill on Tuesday, one day before the Senate Judiciary Committee is to hold a hearing.”
