Immigration Reform 2013 – New Immigration Law

The Senate’s comprehensive immigration reform bill (with the amendment to add funding for increased border security) is poised to be passed by the Senate before the July 4, 2013, congressional recess.

This is a step in the right direction, but passage in the Republican House is still uncertain.  House Republicans are not in any rush to pass reform and are concerned about the political backlash from their conservative constituents.  Hopefully, the House Republican leaders speaking out against immigration reform are doing so in order to gain additional concessions on border security rather than expressing their desire to kill the bill.
