Time for Debate: Resources for Immigration Reform With a Human Face
|Immigration Reform Legislation|
|Administration Position Papers|
|Compilied by Ron Jones, University of Cincinnati Law Library|
Last Friday, the Senate started debating immigration reform. Instead of debating the merits of the xenophobic bill passed by the House last year, H.R. 4437, the Senate is considering S. 2454, the Securing America's Borders Act, which Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist introduced on March 16, 2006, and the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act, which the Senate Committee on the Judiciary reported out on March 27, 2006. Title IV of S. 2454 and Title V in the Judiciary-reported bill would substantially increase legal permanent immigration and would restructure the allocation of the family-sponsored and employment-based visas.
Let's hope the Senate takes the high road this election year by debating and passing immigration reform with a human face ... one face, 12 million times.

How times have changed since 2006! The churn off immigration events that's happened since then is almost mind blowing.

It is the most wonderful article I have found in the immigration debate.
