Two former governors and two former Cabinet secretaries are forming a bipartisan group to push for overhauling the nation's immigration laws and putting 11 million illegal immigrants on a path to citizenship.

Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a Democrat, disclosed details in an interview about the effort he'll be heading along with former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, a Republican. Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, a Republican, and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros, a Democrat, are the other two involved.

Rendell says the purpose is to keep up momentum behind the immigration reform effort and help devise a solution that can get through Congress.

The group is being formed with help from the Bipartisan Policy Center.
