The article reports that U.S. Senators John McCain and Edward Kennedy will introduce an immigration bill by March 2007. Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez said that a comprehensive immigration bill should include a temporary-worker program and a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy says that the bill is unlikely to succeed without the support of the administration of President George W. Bush.
