    Gang of Eight aiming to unveil immigration reform bill Thursday

    The Senate’s Gang of Eight is aiming to release comprehensive immigration reform legislation on Thursday, according to Senate sources.

    A member of the group said the bill is virtually complete and the plan is to roll it out this week, but he warned it could slip into next week.

    One of the last questions to be resolved was over how to handle immigrant agricultural workers. The farm industry and unions were split over the issues of wages and visas.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who has taken the lead on negotiating agricultural visas, said Tuesday a tentative deal had been reached.

    The bill is ready to roll out Thursday apparently. All will be seen then. Deals have been reached and is ready to be rolled out. We will have to see where it goes from there.

    So in other words, with her as a sponsor, it will take another week to put the final nail in this bill's coffin......
