03/30/06.Senate Judiciary Chairman Arlen Specter, R-Pa., Senate Judiciary ranking Democrat Patrick J. Leahy, D-Vt., Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., Sen. Ken Salazar, D-Colo., Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., Sen. Mel Martinez, R-Fla., Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman, D-Conn., and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., during a news conference on immigration overhaul. The bipartisan bill approved Monday by the Judiciary Committee would include a guest worker provision, which builds on language in a bill (S 1033) by McCain and Kennedy that would make temporary workers eligible to apply for green cards after six years. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist's version includes no such provision, which he characterizes as "amnesty" for illegal immigrants and does not support a proposal to provide a path to citizenship for them.
