Immigration Reform Bill Debate Continues
Immigration reform continues to be a "hot" topic as Congress debate over the immigration bill sees some hope of a possible agreement.
The Senate last June passed a sweeping immigration bill that would give millions of undocumented immigrants a pathway to citizenship but the legislation has languished in the House. But immigration reform advocates' hopes are being rekindled by stirrings in the Republican-led House of Representatives for taking up the issue. In fact, over the past few weeks, there have been signs that leaders may soon offer a framework for reform. For instance, the House Speaker John Boehner informed his rank-and-file on January 8 that leading House Republicans were preparing to lay out "principles" for immigration legislation, according to Republicans who attended the closed-door meeting. One Republican leadership aide said a framework for reform could be unveiled as early as next week.
