From The Associated Press:


A bipartisan group of leading senators has reached agreement on the principles of sweeping legislation to rewrite the nation’s immigration laws. The deal, which was to be announced at a news conference Monday afternoon, covers border security, guest workers and employer verification, as well as a path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants already in this country.


Although thorny details remain to be negotiated and success is far from certain, the development heralds the start of what could be the most significant effort in years toward overhauling the nation’s inefficient patchwork of immigration laws.


President Barack Obama also is committed to enacting comprehensive immigration legislation and will travel to Nevada on Tuesday to lay out his vision, which is expected to overlap in important ways with the Senate effort.

From Greg Sargent & The Washington Post:


Today a bipartisan group of Senators will unveil the framework for a major new immigration reform bill. You can read the framework right here. The most important fact about the plan is that it articulates as a policy goal the need to provide a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants. That was the bottom line for Senate Democrats and immigration reform advocates, and they got four Republican Senators to agree to it.


It’s the price Democrats paid for this concession that could be the problem. It’s a cliche to say at such moments that the “Devil is in the details,” but in this case, boy is the Devil ever in the details…..

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama was meeting on Monday with police chiefs from the three U.S. communities that saw the worst mass shootings of 2012, as his administration continues its push to address gun violence.


Obama was to meet at the White House with the police chiefs from Aurora, Colorado, where 12 were killed; Oak Creek, Wisconsin, where six died in an assault on a Sikh temple; and Newtown, Connecticut, where 20 children and six adults were shot dead.


A White House official said representatives from the Major Cities Chiefs Association and the Major County Sheriffs Association will also participate. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the meeting publicly.
