The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the A.F.L.-C.I.O. have reportedly struck a deal on key elements of immigration reform. We examine the back-room bargaining between these two powerful groups and their influence on eventual legislation.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the A.F.L.-C.I.O. have reportedly struck a deal on key elements of immigration reform, agreeing on pay levels and types of jobs for guest workers.
