The Legislature has still been unable to pass an immigration reform bill despite an extensive bipartisan proposal. House Speaker John Boehner voiced his concerns about the lack of progress in enacting an immigration reform bill. The proposed bill in the Senate would have both positive and negative implications for immigrants.
While a group of Senate leaders prepared a proposed bill after months of hard work, a similar group of House leaders have been unable to reach a compromise for four years. There is no indication on how long it will take for the sides to reach an agreement or whether any compromise would be accepted by the legislature as a whole.
