In a region where undocumented workers make up a significant part of the agriculture business, the possible compromise on immigration has people in the central valley talking.
"1.4 million farm season workers in the US and I have 400,000 of those here in California," said Manuel Cunha, Nisei Famers League.
The proposed reform by 8 senators from each side of the aisle is bringing hope to those who would be impacted the most.
"They've got to be legal so that the fear is gone and their families are safe," Cunha said.
The deal would call for stricter border enforcement and a chance for citizenship for illegal immigrants already in the U.S.
They would have to register with the government, pay a fine, and back taxes.
"Soon as the president signs it, they will then be safe," Cunha said.
Congressman Devin Nunes believes the immigration system is broken and goes on by saying:
"We need reform that both secures the border and ends the unacceptable status quo, in which there are millions of people living and working in the shadows."
"It's going to get much more nitty and gritty, much more specific, " Jessica Bobadilla, Immigration Attorney said.
Bobadilla says while this compromise is just a blue print, she thinks it's serving a dual need.
"A need for employees to get their employees documented and immigrants to fully enter society, "Bobadilla said.
