What is in the Senate Immigration Bill?
The bipartisan group of senators known as the “Gang of Eight” introduced S. 744, the “Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act.”
The Senate Bill as of right now (April 19, 2013) provides a version of Green card status to almost everyone in the United States who entered the United States before December 31, 2011. The term is called Registered Provisional Immigrant or (RPI). This status allows a person to work and travel, and eventually receive permanent residency status and citizenship.
The potential new law includes almost everyone including people who have been ordered deported by the Immigration Court, and those who did not show up to immigration court, and those who accepted Voluntary Departure and did not leave the United States.
Our firm will continue to Blog every few days about the possible New Law. Please note, the final Bill will change as the House of Representatives must pass a Bill and then it will go into committee. After that, it must be passed by both the Senate and House and then signed by the President. Until this is done, there is no new law, only speculation.
