Interactive: The good in the Senate's immigration reform proposal

The Senate's immigration reform proposal shows a lot of promise about it. It's bipartisan and it's comprehensive. The plan provides a path to citizenship for people who are already in the U.S., a tempting incentive for graduate-degree holders to stay here with a green card offer and strong border and workplace controls.

President Obama is expected to announce his immigration plan on Tuesday. A Washington Post story says his plan will be more liberal than the Senate's.

Editorial writer Lynne K. Varner called it a game changer in an Ed Cetera blog post Monday.

I'm pleasantly surprised that Congress did something resembling the work of Congress. Still, it seems like a long road to secure House support.

Check out this AP interactive that compares Obama's goals with the Senate plan.
