Specter's Immigration Bill

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

The Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is circulating a draft of a compromise immigration bill that does not include guest worker provisions favored by President Bush.

The draft from the lawmaker, Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, opens a new stage in an emotional debate that is expected to play a major role in elections in California and many other states next year. It has already divided the Republican Party, pitting talk-radio populists hostile to illegal immigrants against businesses seeking willing workers, and religious groups with humanitarian concerns.
