Immigration Reform: One Year After the Senate Approved the “Border Security, Economic

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.
One year has passed since the Senate approved the "Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act." In June of 2013, hopes were high that comprehensive immigration reform would become a reality. One year later, these hopes seem misplaced. The Washington Post recently reported that lawmakers on both sides don’t believe that immigration reform will be successful until President Obama leaves office. Despite statements by both Democrats and Republicans that immigration reform is critical to the survival of their parties, opposition from House Republicans has prevented the passage of any reform. With the defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) in a primary election to a tea-party challenger whose campaign focused on an anti-immigration platform, immigration reform advocates have lost a critical supporter. Despite these negative developments, there is still time for comprehensive immigration reform to pass. We urge readers to contact their representatives to express their support for immigration reform.

    Hey everybody !

    This is the link of a petition on the White House Website to ask Obama Administration
    to change the immigration law about MINOR SIBBLINGS of US Citizen (The F2A family category) :

    https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/vote-immigration-reform-enable-minor-children-immigrate-their-parents/wp5tBFxJ

    You all know the problem we face, when parents of US Citizen can get a visa, without waiting time,
    as immediate relatives ;

    But they have to leave behind their MINOR children, for many years !

    Last June,2013, They started to vote the reform ; But since then, nothing happened !!

    PLEASE, SHARE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE !!!!

    100 000 SIGNATURES NEEDED BY JULY 23, 2014 !!!

    Have immigration reform advocates really "lost a critical supporter" in the primary defeat of Eric Cantor?

    While his statements against reform may not have been quite as inflammatory as those of the Tea Party extremist who defeated him, Dave Brat, Cantor did as much as almost any other House Republican to block reform.

    With a "friend" like Cantor, immigration reform did not need any enemies.
