Comprehensive immigration reform is here. The Senate’s “Gang of Eight” has released an 844-page bill detailing everything from legalizing 11 million undocumented immigrants, reforming the existing legal immigration system, strengthening border security and the entry-exit channels, as well as mandating an electronic employment verification system.
While it’s a big step forward to have a bill on the table that can be debated and amended, we still have a long way to go in order for the proposed bill to become law.
That’s all we have now, is just a bill. The following infographic, in English as well as Spanish, explains the road to reform potentially becoming law. Below, we also have links to an Immigration Reform Advocacy Tool Kit and as well as a manual in English and Spanish for what you can do during Congress’ April Recess.
