Gunman killed after holding four
firefighters hostage in Ga. home

Senate plans to strengthen border
security with stricter surveillance

Demanded his
cable, power be
turned back on
gunman who was having finan-
cial problems held four fire-
fighters for hours in a suburban
Atlanta home, demanding his
cable and power be turned back

on, before being shot dead when
SWAT members stormed the
house, authorities said Wednes-
day. The hostages had cuts and
bruises from explosions officers
set off to distract the gunman
before moving in, but they will
be fine, a fire official said.
Minutes before the police
announcement on the resolu-
tion, a huge blast could be heard
a quarter-mile away from the

home, shuddering through the
Suwanee neighborhood, setting
off car alarms.
Earlier Wednesday, five fire-
fighters responded to what
seemed like a routine medical
call and were eventually taken
hostage by an unidentified sus-
pect inside the house, police
said. The gunman released one
of the firefighters to move a fire
truck but held the other four.


New electronic
verification of legal
status to be in put
in place
Bipartisan immigration legisla-
tion being written in the Senate
would require surveillance of
100 percent of the U.S. border
with Mexico and apprehension*
of 90 percent of people trying
to cross the border. in certain
high-risk areas, a person famil-
iar with the proposals said
People living here illegally
could begin to get green cards
in 10 years, but only if a new
southern border security plan
is in place, employers have
adopted mandatory electronic
verification of their workers'
legal status and a new elec-
tronic exit system is operating
at airports and seaports.
The person provided the-
information on condition of
anonymity because the delib-
erations were private.
The contours of the tough
new border security plans
emerged as senators moved
closer to unveiling sweeping
legislation within days that
would put some 11 million
immigrants living here ille-
gally on a path to citizenship
and allow tens of thousands of
high- and low-skilled workers
into the country on new visa
programs, in addition to secur-
ing the border.
Lawmakers and aides said
all the major elements were
complete, or close to. A final
deal was near on a new visa
for agriculture workers. There
were small details to be dealt
with on visas for high-tech
workers, but Sen. Dick Durbin,
D-Ill., said it wasn't enough to
hold up the bill.
"We are closer now than
we have been in 25 years for
serious immigration reform,"
Durbin told reporters Wednes-
day after he and other Demo-

crats in the Senate negotiating
group briefed members of the
Congressional Hispanic Cau-
cus. "This president is behind
it, and there is a strong, grow-
ing bipartisan effort in the Sen-
ate to support it. We hope that
the House will do the same."
Meanwhile tens of thou-
sands of pro-immigration
activists massed outside the
Capitol and in cities around
the country to push Congress
to act. They waved American
flags and carried signs read-
ing, "Reform immigration for
America now!"
The border security piece
of the legislation is critical to
getting support from Republi-
cans, but some Democrats have
opposed making a path to citi-
zenship contingent on border
security. Sen. Chuck Schum-
er, D-N.Y., said that the new
requirements wouldn't impede
"A lot of people here would
not want to put dollars into the
border, but as a price to get citi-
zenship, as long as it's not an
impediment to citizenship but
rather works alongside citizen-
ship, it's something we can all
live with," Schumer said, after
talking to the Hispanic House
members. "What we've said
all along is triggers have to be
objective and attainable in a
way it doesn't interfere or delay
with people becoming citizens,
and that's in the bill."
According to the person
familiar with the proposals, the
new border security require-
ments call for 100 percent
surveillance and a 90 percent
apprehension rate of border
crossers or would-be crossers
in sectors where the majority
of unauthorized entries take
The goals would be achieved
by giving the Department of
Homeland Security six months
from the bill's enactment to
create the new border security
plan deploying the personnel,
infrastructure and technology
needed to achieve the 90 per-

cent effectiveness rate. Also
within six months, the depart-
ment would have to create a
plan to identify where new
fencing is needed on the bor-
der. Once those plans are certi-
fied, people living here illegally
could begin to apply for a pro-
visional status allowing them
to work here legally.
If the 90 percent rate of
apprehensions isn't achieved in
high-risk border sectors within
five years, a commission made
of border state officials would
make recommendations on
how to achieve it.
After 10 years, people granted
"registered provisional immi-
grant status" could apply for
green cards granting them per-
manentresidency - and the abil-
ity to seek citizenship - if the
new security and fencing plans
have been completed, the man-
datory employment verification
system is in place and used by
all employers, and the new elec-
tronic exit system is operating at
airports and seaports, collecting
machine-readable visa or pass-
port information from airplanes
and ships.
The electronic exit system
is meant to keep better track
of people in the country on
temporary visas. Some 40 per-
cent of people in the country
illegally arrived with visas but
stayed after they expired. The
employment verification piece
would be an expansion of an
existing system called E-Verify
that's currently voluntary for
most employers, though it's
mandatory in some states.
The bill would allocate $5.5
billion for the various propos-
als, including $1.5 billion for
fencing, $2 billion for other
border measures and $2 billion
to help the commission of bor-
der state officials do its work,
should that become necessary,
the person said, stressing more
or less money could be allocat-
ed if needed.
The border security details
were first reported Wednesday
by the Wall Street Journal.
