A high-profile new bipartisan group is forming to pressure Congress to overhaul the nation's immigration laws, including former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, the Washington-based Bipartisan Policy Center announced Monday.

The group will also be led by former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros, as well as former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R) and former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell. The new immigration task force will add members in coming days and will meet in coming months to establish a series of recommendations for policy leaders to revamp immigration laws, including improving border security and enforcement, expanding routes for legal immigration and dealing with the estimated 11 million people now living in the country illegally.
