Reid highlighted a bipartisan deal negotiated by senators, which was being announced later Monday. The deal would create a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already living in the United States, increase the immigration of skilled workers, implement an employer verification program and create a guest-worker program. President Obama is also expected to announce an immigration plan on Tuesday.

“There is no reason we should not pass comprehensive immigration reform immediately,” Reid said. “I hope we’ll soon have a bill to send through the committee process and bring a bill to the floor for a vote.”

“Republicans have been unwilling to work to find common ground," Reid said. "I’m glad to see that has changed, rather than just complaining that the system is broken.”
