GOP Senators Trying to Shape a Compromise on Immigration

In the LA Times there is an article by Maura Reynolds and Nicole Gaouette, Times Staff Writers on April 4, 2006;

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) launched what participants said would be a series of closed-door negotiations to bridge a divide between Republicans who favored providing a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants and those who opposed it.
