Immigration reform bill, S.744, or “Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act” is all set to be debated by full Senate starting June 10, 2013. And it’s not looking like a smooth sailing! First, immigration reform bill supporters anticipate a few dozen amendments to this bill. Second, the debate will be somewhat rushed due to a deadline of July 4, 2013 (beginning of Senate recess). Third, critics say immigration bill grants amnesty to undocumented population, does not provide enough border security and brings in too many foreigners to take jobs from unemployed Americans.
On a bright side, it is possible for the immigration bill otherwise known as immigration amnesty to get about 60 votes from the 100-member Senate. We at Valentini Law Offices are very optimistic that this time around the immigration reform bill pass!
