Immigration Reform Bill Approved by Senate Judiciary Committee

The Senate Judiciary Committee approved 13-5 a comprehensive immigration bill, S.744, on Thursday night.  The bill was introduced by a bipartisan group of senators known as the Gang of Eight. After several weeks of intense debates, the bill survived more than 200 proposed amendments and is ready to be debated on the full Senate floor beginning the first week of June.  The bill is the most comprehensive U.S. immigration reform proposal in recent decades.  If passed into law, S.744, will change many aspects of the current  immigration system and provide a path for the estimated 11 million of undocumented immigrants to obtain U.S. citizenship.
