President Barack Obama is backing an immigration bill outline drafted by two senators that says illegal immigrants must admit they broke the law to become citizens.

Obama says in a statement that the outline of a bill Sen. Chuck Schumer and Sen. Lindsey Graham are crafting addresses border security and demands accountability from illegal immigrants and employers who hire them.

He says the critical next step is to translate their outline into legislation.

Obama's statement comes just four days before tens of thousands of immigrants and their supporters plan to rally in Washington to press the administration and Congress to pass immigration reform.
