    i just wondered suzanne, where do you get your information about this?
    From about seven or eight immigration attorneys that I really trust, and I do quite a bit of reading, as well. I am always picking brains.

    And from putting two and two together with what has happened in the US over the past 25 years or so and how things have been previously done. New visas always take about three months once they are approved to be available for use.

    Does anybody know the reason for this meeting and is it a forward step
  9. by   lawrence01
    Yes, this is the first step for the revival of the Comprehensive Immigration Reform. They will be consulting those two persons and some senators will be debating some immigration issues before they can form a bill (Senate version) that every senator agrees with.

    After that, the Senate will have to confer w/ the House of Representatives (who will have their own version of the CIR as well). They will then have to make a final version wherein both versions or each Houses agrees to and that final version will be forwarded to the US President for signing to ratify it.

    Sounds easy but it failed last year (before the US Nov. elections) because the House of Representatives back then did not agree w/ the Senate version.

    hi lawrence
    does that mean they will work only on immigration reform in regards to illegals or they will include nurses too?
    thank y

    We have no idea, and neither does anyone else. This is just a beginning meeting and it far from being anywhere near complete. If you notice it is just a small amount of people to design the bill that they will put before Congress. That could take months alone.

    Think of this as being an introductory meeting at your nursing school, just the beginning of a long process. A bill needs to be created, and then submitted to the Congress for it to discuss, and then eventually vote on it. And if approved, then it needs to go to the House for their approval, and then the process is not over then. Far from it.

    As Suzanne said, it may or it may not. The CIR itself has a possibility that it may not even be done this year if certain immigration issues are not agreed upon but if you've read the whole thread so far, new Visas for nurses does not necessarily be dependent on the CIR alone.

    Creation of new visas for nurses does not necessarily be part of the CIR.

    New Immigration Reform Bill Coming

    WASHINGTON -- U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy is finalizing immigration legislation that would make it easier for illegal aliens to gain citizenship, a Washington newspaper reported.

    The Washington Times reported Thursday that the bill backed by Kennedy, D-Mass., would weaken enforcement provisions included in immigration legislation approved by the Senate last year.
