I will be very surprised if there is a bill, too many critters too entrenched in their positions to compromise.

At a grotesquely simplistic level the opposing positions basically boil down to:

Conservatives:

  1. Seal the border
  2. Don't give amnesty to the illegals already here

Liberals:

  1. Don't seal the border
  2. Give amnesty to the illegals already here
Having no bill IS the compromise between those two positions, but it ends up leaving the status quo in place, which is effectively the liberals position, since we don't have sealed borders and we don't enforce our existing laws (weak as they are).
