One in Four Could Not Legalize Under Senate Bill

"President Obama has staked his bid to rewrite the nation’s immigration laws on providing a path to citizenship for immigrants living in the country illegally.  Failing to do so, he told a Spanish-language television station, would mean 11 million people “permanently resigned to a lower status.”  But even if the Senate legislation favored by Obama became law tomorrow, more than one in four illegal immigrants would remain undocumented and outside the system, according to federal estimates." - Washington Post, July 26, 2013.
