Immigration Reform Update
I have received a number of emails and letters concerned that the Republican conference has committed to a bill that grants amnesty to persons who entered the country illegally. This is not true.
Speaker John Boehner introduced a list of guidelines he supported if we were to write an immigration reform bill. He has since pulled that document from consideration.
The document did not support amnesty. It did provide for a limited pathway to legal status, meaning people could be here legally after meeting a number of stringent requirements, but there was not a pathway to citizenship or amnesty.
I will keep you informed if there is a bill that supports immigration reform in the future and outline what the bill supports.
