WASHINGTON - A bipartisan group of House members working in secret on a comprehensive immigration bill is nearing completion and has met with party leaders to brief them.
A spokesman for Republican House Speaker John Boehner says Boehner had a good talk Friday with Republicans in the group, and that the lawmakers have made real progress.
The group's four Democrats met Thursday with Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
The group had hoped to release their bill around the time of the State of the Union last month, but now an aide says they will aim for April.
They're expected to include some way for some illegal immigrants to become citizens, but details are unclear.
Attention has focused on a negotiating group in the Senate, which is expected to act first on immigration.
