It’s been a while since I wrote about immigration, so I thought I’d do a quick overview. To start, the president has signed a comprehensive immigration reform bill into law. This bill will put the focus on getting rid of all the barriers that prevent people from getting jobs, and it will also be a huge step in reducing illegal immigration.
The new immigration law also includes stricter refugee/asylum policies and provisions for how the federal government will deal with the issue of legal and illegal immigrants.
This is one of the few times we have really been on the fence. The first time I heard about immigration, my Dad was on the phone and his reaction was hilarious. I guess he wasn’t looking for comedy anymore. Now we’re on his side.
This law is called the “Comprehensive Immigrant and Refugee Act” and it was written with the support of Senator Lindsey Graham and Representative Bob Goodlatte. Graham and Goodlatte both believe the current immigration system is broken and needs to be changed. Of course, the idea that we should be allowing people to come into this country illegally has always been absurd to me.
The Comprehensive Immigrant and Refugee Act would create a path for legal permanent residence for approximately 500,000 undocumented immigrants. We have a long way to go before the bill can pass, but it seems like the effort by those two congressmen is working. That said, the bill does include a number of measures that would end the visa lottery. This would also end the visa lottery and would allow the undocumented immigrants to apply for green cards.
The bill would also extend the life of the visa lottery, which allows those who have a work permit to apply for a green card without having to wait another year for the application.
But the bill has a number of other loopholes and provisions that would allow states to ignore the bill or ignore the federal law. For example, it says that if a state doesn’t pass a plan in time, it can still opt to not participate in the program. Or it says that any state that doesn’t pass a plan in time will automatically be required to comply with the federal law. There are also provisions that would allow states to ignore the federal law if they want.
To say that the bill is “amazing” is an understatement. From the bill itself to the provisions, the bill would allow states to block the implementation of the federal immigration program. This is despite the fact that the bill is not fully implemented, and the people suing the states for not implementing it are in the same position as the people of California with the California bill. It seems that states can now block the implementation of the federal immigration program in one of two ways.
The first would be to not implement the bill at all. The bill allows for states to block the implementation of the federal immigration program, but states can’t implement the bill until the federal immigration program is fully implemented. The other is that states can block the implementation, but they must first implement the federal immigration program. It is unclear if the states can block the implementation of the federal immigration program without first implementing the federal immigration program.
I’m not sure that this is as clear cut as it may seem. A federal law like this is not a law that affects only federal law, and the states have the right to implement it. In fact, the federal government can not force states to implement the federal immigration program without first implementing the federal immigration program. This is true because, according to the current federal law, states’ implementation of the federal immigration program is limited to only the implementation of the “provisions” of the law.
