Immigration Deal Reached

(CNN) – Undocumented immigrants who entered the country after December 31, 2011, will not be eligible for citizenship under terms of the immigration deal set to be unveiled Tuesday.
The measure includes a 13-year path to citizenship that could affect up to roughly 11 million undocumented residents, as well as the creation of a system to assess border security. The path to citizenship would take 10 years for undocumented workers to get a green card, and then another three years to gain citizenship.

Along the way, undocumented workers would have to pay a fine and back taxes and pass a background check. The size of the fine remains unclear. No undocumented worker would be eligible for citizenship until the border is considered secure – a key sticking point for conservatives. Read the entire story at CNN.com.
