HERE’S THE LATEST ON IMMIGRATION REFORM

 


The Congress of the U.S. is busily considering immigration reform legislation that would impact the lives of many undocumented immigrants.  Here’s an update:

  • The House of Representatives have now passed the Build Back Better bill with  an immigration “parole” proposal that would help approximately 7.1 million undocumented and over 1 million Californian immigrants;
  • Also, many would then be eligible to adjust their status to a green card here without leaving the country; 
  • Basically, most everyone with an adult child born here then could file for permanent residence who are now currently ineligible;
  • The parole option has to survive the judgment of the Senate Parliamentarian that it is sufficiently related to the budget to pass with 51 votes through reconciliation;
  • If the Parliamentarian approves, this has a real chance; the Democrats would just have to make sure all 50 of their own voted for it
