ABSTRACT
This article focuses on work towards a immigration-reform bill in the United States. Instead of compromising between the Senate version backed by U.S. President George W. Bush and the hard-line House bill, lawmakers in both chambers plan to travel around the country rallying support for their respective versions. Republican leaders are frustrated with the Senate bill, which gives illegal immigrants a path to citizenship.
