Hagel: I'm amused at Jim and others who say it's amnesty. We'll let the conference figure this out. I've spoken to Jim's colleagues. Most Republicans on the House side, including leadership, want to try and find a resolution to this. This is the best opportunity.
Russert: Would you support legislation that doesn't provide a path to citizenship?
Hagel: We can amend it, but deferring problem if we don't do this. We are now dealing with all the pieces in the Senate bill. Doesn't mean it's perfect.
Sensenbrenner: I hope there's a bill. But it's important to do it right. We did it wrong 20 years ago. None of us want our name on a bill that blows up and makes it worse 20 years from now.
