GOP Leadership Will Back Legal Status for Immigrants

New York Times: "The House Republican leadership's broad framework for overhauling the nation's immigration laws will call this week for a path to legal status -- but not citizenship -- for many of the 11 million adult immigrants who are in the country illegally... For immigrants brought to the United States illegally as young children, the Republicans would offer a path to citizenship."

"But even before the document is unveiled later, some of the party's leading strategists and conservative voices are urging that the immigration push be abandoned, or delayed until next year, to avoid an internal party rupture before the midterm elections."
