Immigration Reform May be Coming

Posted: January 28th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Deferred Action, National News | Tags: , , | No Comments »

Two pieces of news today that give us continuing hope that immigration reform may become a reality this year.

  • President Obama and his staff continued meetings today with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (this is a group of 27 Hispanic Congresspersons). ABC News reports that President Obama will make a significant announcement on immigration next Tuesday during a trip to Las Vegas.
  • The Washington Post reports that a bipartisan group of influential senators, who have been meeting quietly since the election, have reached agreement on core principles and may announce a plan for comprehensive immigration reform as early as Friday next week. The Post article states that this agreement, represents “the most substantive bipartisan effort” towards immigration reform in years.

There have been no details released from either the Administration or Congress.  However, we believe that the political will for immigration reform in both the Democratic and Republican parties is at its highest level in years.
