The immigration bill being filed today by the Senate's "Gang of Eight" creates a way for undocumented immigrants in this country to, "adjust their legal status."

But as expected, there are a lot of boxes to check before anyone can pursue that path to citizenship. There is a $500 fee to pay, plus back taxes, and you are ineligible if you have been convicted of a felony or three or more misdemeanors. KPCC's Leslie Berestein Rojas is here to tell us more.
