This article reports that after the U.S. Senate approval of a bill that would make major changes in immigration policy, the measure's fate hinges on a conference to bridge differences with the House version. Reaching a deal on immigration, a major issue for construction, other business groups and unions, may depend on how hard U.S. President George W. Bush pushes for an agreement. The Senate measure, approved on May 25, 2006 on a 62-36 vote, seeks to combine tougher border enforcement with a guest worker plan and a way for illegal immigrants in to gain U.S. citizenship. The requirements vary according to how long a person has been in the U.S.
