Optimism is high that serious comprehensive immigration reform is on the horizon. Bills have been filed in both the House and Senate supporting immigration reform. Although a bill is not yet law and must pass both the the House and Senate before being signed by the President, bills must first pass through subcommitties before moving to a full vote. Immigration is always a contraversial issue due to concerns about immigrants taking jobs, using services and changing the political landscape. However, with an estimated one out of every eight babies born in the United States belonging to at least a part immigrant family, comprehensive reform is needed to promote family unity and stability. The potential reforms would allow more work visas and a path to eventual citizenship after many years to millions of undocumented immigrants. For more details, see the following article.
