More Immigration compromise by the Senate.

Immigration: The house stand is paying off a bit as the Senators who favor amnesty seem willing to talk about taking off the legalization part of it until the border enforcement is in place.

July 6 (Bloomberg) -- Two key supporters of a Senate immigration measure calling for guest-worker and legalization programs said they would consider linking those provisions to toughened border security to help break a legislative deadlock. Senators Arlen Specter, a Pennsylvania Republican who heads the Judiciary Committee, and Edward Kennedy, a Massachusetts Democrat, indicated interest in a compromise that would delay the Senate programs until House demands for improved border security are met. ``There's certainly the recognition that some of this is going to take longer than others,'' Kennedy said yesterday after a hearing on the Senate immigration measure in Philadelphia. ``The other side is just talking about formalizing those aspects. We're glad to talk to them.''
