This article reports on the move by U.S. Rep. Mike Pence, R.-Ind. and U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, to unveil a proposal on July 25, 2006 that Pence described as a rational middle ground between the Senate-approved comprehensive bill and the House's border-security measure aimed at jump-starting the stalled immigration reform negotiation. Under their plan, once the president certifies that all mandated border-security measures are completed, a privately run guest-worker program would start in. Critics questioned the practicality of a program premised on inducing millions of people to return home.
