05/25/06--Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and other senators during a news conference after the Senate passed, 62-36, a sweeping immigration overhaul Thursday evening, setting up what is likely to be a bruising battle with the House over the fate of 11 million to 12 million illegal immigrants already in the United States. The compromise measure (S 2611) would grant most of those immigrants legal status to work in the United States and allow them to earn U.S. citizenship over a period of years. That provision, denounced as ÒamnestyÓ by bill opponents, is anathema to most House Republicans and will make for a contentious conference. Congressional Quarterly Photo by Scott J. Ferrell
