reached an immigration reform bill. tom fitzgerald is following this for us and with so much controversy and debate on the issuer a bipartisan deal is a surprise here, i would imagine. >> reporter: in many ways it s. the bulk of the negotiations have been conducted in secret, largely, by four democrats in and four republicans. gop is eager to map out after the poor showing for mitt romney among latino voters. democrats are trying to regain momentum after failing to get the dream act passed fully by congress. this afternoon, the group outlined what it's calling the main principles. lawmakers are calling for creating a system that would allow illegal immigrants to become citizens. it creates a get worker program, establishes employment verification systems and grants green cards to people with advanced college degrees from u.s. institutions. at least one major republican said that the proposed path of citizenship for the shaded 11
million illegal -- estimated 11 million illegal immigrants mean the key to the republican pack's future. >> the republican party is losing the support of the hispanic citizens and we realize for many issues, which we are in agreement for our hispanic citizens, but this is a pre-eminent issue with those citizens. >> repter: >> reporter: president george w. bush was outspoken in his support from the beginning. i think we have clear presidential support here, and what we have in our state, our conversation last night with the president, he cheered us on. >> it's important to keep in mind that for this plan to become law, it would have to pass the republican-controlled house of representatives. speaker boehner will allow it to come up with a vote. we want to talk about this. joining us from maryland, the democratic state senator of montgomery county and corey
stewart, republican chairman of the prince william county bord of supervisors. chairman stewart, i want to start with you. you have been a longtime voice on the immigration debate, saying mainly that local and state governments have carried the bulk of issues. how do you see this today? is the federal government stepping up in your view? >> the federal government has no credibility with regard to immigration reform and enforcement. why would we believe that washington is going to enforce new immigration law if it's not enforcing the current law? every day, thousands of criminal illegal aliens are aphandied -- apprehended by local law enforcement, they contact i.c.e. and i.c.e. directs them to release the criminal aliens. there is no reason to believe that if we pass the reform willing, they're going to change anything, they're going to beef up enforcement or change it in any way. >> a lot of times, you know, state and local governments
have had to deal with the on- the-ground issues of all of this. one of the things that came up was the electronic registration for immigrants. some folks on the left have voiced concerns about this, especially the aclu. do you have a problem with people having to register with the government? do you think this population will be receptive to doing that? >> and thank you very much, tom. i would agree with corey we have a problem andha is the problem that congress is not a directioning reform. with regard to the principles laid out, specifically e verify, the problem that social security administration is already indicated is that there is a lot of false positives in that program right now, and while we wait for comprehensive immigration reform, we can't wait for states to begin implementing e verify and to start work the kinks out of the
system we need a comprehensive reform plan with a clear attainable path to citizenship that doesn't thrust unreasonable, unfunded mandates like mine and the commonwealth that corey represents, and that is attainable and doable politically and that is where we're hoping the group of six can get done and we have a lot of confidence if they will. >> and one problem i'm nailing down is that these are proposals and principles. >> that's right. >> what is it that you're going to want to see hard evident of when this is finally put into a legislative form? >> we need to seat federal government is -- enforcement. there is no reason to change the law if the agency, the dhs, department of homeland security, doesn't have the power or means to enforce the laws. what you need to see is that a beefing up of local law
enforcement, the use of local law enforcement to enforce the nation's immigration laws, a tightening down at the border, but it's i bare minimum that i.c.e. needs to receive illegal aliens to commit crimes or have it handed to them and deported. >> i want to give time to the state senator before wrapping up quickly. what do you want to see in a way that is tangible and something that would work for marylanders? >> well, requiring local law enforcement to enforce federal immigration laws because ins hasn't been given the authority to do it is the wrong way to g. our local law enforcement officers are busy cleaning up the streets, keeping folks safe. they not responsible for immigration enforcement. if we lined up all of our new and existing immigration officials on the border of the u.s. and mexico.
>> right. >> that being see each other. we have unmanned drones flying overhead. we have more enforcement going on the borders now than ever in the united states history, and we need to go of our local law enforcement the tools they neek not enforcing federal laws that should be -- . >> unfortunately, what we don't have more of is time and as much as we would like to continue this conversation, we're out of it right now. we appreciate you coming in. >> and thank you. >> we'll find out what this looks like in march. that is when this will be put before the u.s. senate. >> all right, tom fitzgerald, thank you for the update. >> a longtime maryland legislator hurt in a fire thursday night died. the 83-year-old died saturday at a baltimore hospital. she was found thursday in a fire at her temple hills home. she represented prince georges county from 1992-1994 and was the assistant floor leader in
