S.1 IMMIGRATION REFORM THAT WORKS FOR AMERICA’S FUTURE ACT

Rate this Entry

by Chris Musillo


In the forthcoming weeks, Sen. Reid and the Democrats and Sen. Rubio and the Republicans will begin to shape their immigration legislation language.  It is an open secret that the legalization of the approximately 12 million undocumented will entirely drive the politics of the legislation, but there is a real opportunity for Congress to fix other immigration policy failures, such as immigration for shortage occupations.  Let's hope that Congress takes this opportunity and doesn't merely cling to symbols.


Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) this week introduced the wordy, Immigration Reform That Works For America's Future Act.  This Act is the first bill in the Senate, which is symbolic and encouraging. That having been said, it is only a "placeholder," meaning that there is no substantive language attached to the bill at this time.  Politicians like Sen. Rubio (R-FL) are beginning to turn their policy statements into textual law that should be voted on by Congress in the next few months.

    Chris,
    If nurses included in CIR when is it likely to become law, if it passes?
    Also, what is the age limit to obtain GC, 16 or 18?

    @Sagar- It is impossible to say if/when CIR will become law. I think that a substantive bill will be introduced in February and then the question will be whether the Democrats and Republicans can compromise and enact legislation.

    The age limit is 21.

    As fascinating and unsuual as Ken's story was, about being called to serve a client at an inopportune moment, about the client being arrested despite the offer of surrender, about drinking heavily to make it through a bar event, about getting sick, I wondered to myself as a read Ken's tale:Self, do I really need to know this much about Ken's personal hygiene?Negative.
