Senators reach deal on immigration

WASHINGTON (AP) - Even with the support of a bipartisan group of senators, a new immigration reform plan could face a big hurdle in the House -- dominated by conservative Republicans who've shown little interest in easing immigration laws.

The plan, to be announced later today, includes a path to citizenship for the millions of illegal immigrants already in the country. It also covers border security, "guest" workers and employer verification of immigration status.

President Barack Obama is expected to lay out his vision for immigration reform when he travels to Nevada tomorrow.
