Congressional leaders meet in SD for immigration hearings

Congressional leaders will meet with law enforcement officials in Imperial Beach this morning to discuss border issues. It's the first in a series of hearings on immigration reform scheduled by House Republicans.

U.S. Border Patrol officials will take part. People on both sides of the immigration debate are planning to demonstrate outside the hearing room.

Also today, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter will host a hearing in Philadelphia about a need for foreign workers.

House GOP leaders called the unusual hearings last month in a blow to President Bush's ambitious election-year plan that - like a Senate-approved bill backed by Specter -- includes a guest worker program and a path to citizenship for millions here in the country illegally.
