Election Results Bode Well For Comprehensive Immigration Reform

  1. Election Results Bode Well For Comprehensive Immigration Reform

    The democrates easily won the majority in the House of Representatives last night.

    Since immigration reform died in the House of Representatives this year because the Republican leadership prevented the issue from coming to a vote. The change of leadership virtually assures that a bipartisan majority in the House will join the Senate in passing comprehensive immigration reform in 2007.

    According to the bill already passed in the Senate, the Schedule A category and their family members will be exempt from immigration quota for seven years. We can expect that the House will pass similar bill and the President will sign that into law, so the schedule A category retrogression will soon disappear in 2007.

    Good news for nurses, let us celebrate!
