WASHINGTON (AP) - Four senators working on a sweeping bipartisan immigration bill plan to travel to the Arizona border next Wednesday to view conditions there as they try to finalize their legislation.

Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake, both Arizona Republicans, will host Democratic Sens. Chuck Schumer of New York and Michael Bennet of Colorado on the visit.

The trip will come with Congress on recess and as the lawmakers put the finishing touches on a bill designed to secure the border and put 11 million illegal immigrants on a path to citizenship.

Border security is critical to McCain and other Republicans, and McCain had promised to bring other senators to the Arizona border. McCain contends that some areas along the border are far from secure.
