Immigration Bill Could be Resurrected in the Senate – AGC Supports Comprehensive Reform
A bipartisan compromise that would reform U.S. immigration laws faltered June 7 when the Senate failed to halt debate and force a final vote on the measure. However, the legislation remains on life-support and serious negotiations are underway to find an agreement which could allow for the bill to be brought up on the Senate floor before the 4th of July.
AGC endorses a comprehensive approach to the nation’s immigration problems and, while reserving judgment on the Senate bill, supports the key elements and the overall structure of this legislation. AGC believes that Congress needs to move forward with immigration reform because the status quo is unacceptable.
AGC is meeting with Senators and staff this week urging them to reach an agreement to bring the bill back to the floor.
