Private Bills: Immigration Relief of of Last Resort

"Private bills" seeking immigration relief of last resort for individual noincitizens facing removal are little known to the general public.  Karin Brulliard has an interesting article on private bills in today's Washington Post, which includes discussion of the willingness of members of Congress to spopnsor such bills.  Jonathan Turley, a George Washington University law professor, criticizes private bills because not all noncitizens have equal access to Congress.  Of course, Turley is right, and most Americans would like some sort of truly comprehensive immigration reform but that does not appear to be in the cards.
