Senate negotiators released a 844-page bill late Tuesday that aims to make the most substantive changes to immigration laws in nearly three decades. The bipartisan Gang of Eight filed the legislation that would create a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrations, overhaul the legal immigration system and beef up border security.

The public roll-out was delayed because of the deadly blasts at the Boston Marathon, but the legislation is certain to spark an emotional debate that will dominate Washington for the remainder of the year. Authors of the the— dubbed The Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013 — say that it’s the “toughest border security and enforcement measures in U.S. History” in the legislation’s outline.
