Immigration Reform Measure Coming Next Week

  WASHINGTON (AP) - A bipartisan immigration bill soon to be introduced in the Senate could exclude hundreds of thousands of immigrants here illegally from ever becoming U.S. citizens.
     That's according to a Senate aide with knowledge of the proposals.
     The aide said the bill would bar anyone who arrived in the U.S. after Dec. 31, 2011, from applying for legal status and ultimately citizenship. It also would require applicants to document that they were in the country before that date, have a clean criminal record and demonstrate employment or financial stability.
     The aide said those requirements could end up excluding hundreds of thousands from the path to citizenship envisioned by the bill.
     The aide spoke on condition of anonymity because the proposals have not been made public.
