    http://www.democracynow.org - As tens of thousands rallied on Capitol Hill for humane reform Wednesday, more details emerged on the bipartisan immigration plan being drafted in the Senate. The deal will reportedly require greatly increased surveillance and policing near the U.S.-Mexico border. According to The Wall Street Journal, U.S. immigration officials would have to certify complete monitoring of the southern U.S. border and a 90 percent success rate in blocking unlawful entry in certain areas. Only then could the nation's estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants apply for permanent residency. The process is expected to take at least 10 years. Juan Gonzáles, Democracy Now! co-host and New York Daily News columnist, calls the looming congressional debate on immigration "a battle over what will America looks like in the 21st century."
