New proposal.

U.S. Senator John Cornyn (Rep.-Texas) co-authored an immigration proposal that aims to strengthen enforcement along U.S. borders by providing 10,000 new Border Patrol agents and a "controversial" guest-worker program whose goal is to cut off the flow of undocumented immigrants, the San Antonio Express-News reported. The bill has a US$55 billion price tag and is co-authored by U.S. Senator Jon Kyl (Rep.-Arizona). The sponsors made their pitch during a U.S. congressional hearing where panelists testified that the U.S. immigration system is "in shambles" and undocumented immigrants "are critical to the U.S. economy."

The bill is to be introduced to the U.S. Congress in July. The senators did not disclose details on the guest-worker program, saying that a portion of the proposal was still being drafted.
