US business, labor groups reach immigration deal

Published: 03.30.13, 22:57 / Israel News

Major US business and labor groups have reached an agreement on a guest-worker program that removes a major hurdle to a broad immigration overhaul and clears the way for Senate legislation to be introduced soon, a source familiar with the deal said.


The agreement was reached on Friday night between the head of the US Chamber of Commerce, Tom Donohue, and the president of the AFL-CIO labor organization, Richard Trumka, with Senator Chuck Schumer acting mediator; thus allowing bipartisan legislation of a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States to move foward.
