Goodlatte: There Should Be Three Paths to Citizenship for Immigrants

Rate this Entry
House Judiciary Chair Bob Goodlatte has been hinting at this approach for months, but got more explicit today. He's interested in a DREAM Act like path to citizenship for people who came as kids and legalization for adults with the possibility of getting a green card through family or employer sponsorship. I think this is an approach that is worth considering IF provisions are made to ensure that there are enough green cards to eventually absorb this population. Under current quota rules, we could be talking about decades-long waits in the family and employment categories. But if we add provisions to the legislation that deal with this problem, the House approach is not a bad compromise. It would ensure that those already in line for green cards are prioritized and it also helps ensure that those with the closest family ties or are working in jobs where employers can demonstrate real shortages get rewarded with green cards and eventual citizenship. Workers would also have an incentive to train for jobs in fields where there are not enough American workers so that they could process in the employment categories.
