U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) speaks as (L-R) Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), and Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) listen during a news conference on immigration reform April 18, 2013 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. The senators discussed the "Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act".

Finally, after months of negotiations, the House has an immigration bill of its own. California Democrat Zoe Lofgren and Republican John Carter of Texas appeared together last night to announce that the bi-partisan, so-called "Gang of Eight" has a deal "in principle." 

The details aren't yet public, but our very own Washington Correspondent Kitty Felde has been outside the negotiation doors.
