Read The ‘Gang Of 8’s’ Landmark Immigration Plan

April 16, 2013 5:33 a.m.

On Tuesday, a bipartisan group of senators are introducing a major immigration bill that would bolster border security, legalize many of America’s 11 million undocumented immigrants and put them on a path to citizenship, dramatically overhaul the legal immigration system, and crack down on employers who hire unauthorized workers.

While a scheduled press conference to debut the bill was cancelled in response to the Boston bombing, the senators plan on releasing the bill in full later today. In the meantime, TPM has obtained a 17-page memo outlining the broad strokes of the upcoming “Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013.” You can read the full document below.
