AILA Resources on 2014 Immigration Reform (Updated 10/31/14)

Immigration Reform

On June 27, 2013 the Senate, in a 68-32 vote, successfully passed S. 744, the "Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act." (AILA Doc. No. 13041760.) Then it was the House of Representative’s turn to act; unfortunately, even though Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) claimed that he was intent on getting it done (even releasing a one page list of immigration reform principles), the House continued to stall on debating or voting on any real immigration reform. (AILA Doc. No. 14013053.) Finally, on June 30, 2014, the Speaker told the President that there was no chance for reform to pass in the House before the end of the 113th Congress: "In our conversation last week, I told the President what I have been telling him for months: the American people and their elected officials don't trust him to enforce the law as written. Until that changes, it is going to be difficult to make progress on this issue."

While the House leadership continues to stall on taking action, the American public is united as never before, with two out of three Americans supporting reform that includes legalization for the undocumented. As Congress continues to work towards a permanent legislative solution, AILA will use every tool possible to alleviate the suffering to families and businesses caused by a broken immigration system, including pursuing administrative reforms. (AILA Doc. No. 14032850.)
