Dems to talk immigration

From NBC's Ken Strickland
Senate Democratic leaders will hold a news conference on immigration this afternoon at 5:45p in the Capitol.  Participants will include Senators Reid, Durbin, Schumer, Leahy, Feinstein, and Menendez.

In a written statement, the leaders write they will...

"..discuss a preliminary outline of ideas to both secure the nation's borders and reform America's immigration system. Immigration reform remains an important priority for Senate Democrats, but it will take bipartisan support to pass reform this year. That's why Democrats are outlining a framework of concrete, bipartisan ideas to take an important step toward reform. In order to make immigration reform successful, Republicans need to work with Democrats and demonstrate a true commitment to fixing the flaws in America's immigration system to improve our nation's economic and national security."
