Lawmakers to discuss immigration

Two congressmen with prominent roles in the immigration reform debate are set to discuss the issue at a forum in San Antonio.     Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois and Republican Rep. John Carter are members of a bipartisan group that has been conducting secret policy negotiations for four years.   The group has yet to issue recommendations. It has come under new pressure since the House Judiciary Committee announced plans to unveil its own series of bills this week.  President Obama and Democrats in Congress have expressed support for a broad overhaul including a clear path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.  But Republicans describe undocumented immigrants as a strain on resources. They have suggested incremental reforms such as a guest worker program in agriculture.
