Bill to Broaden Immigration Law Gains in Senate

In the New York Times there is an article by Rachel L. Swarns; published: March 28, 2006.

The article details how under the Senate proposal;

“participants in the temporary worker program would have to work for six years before they could apply for a green card. Any worker who remained unemployed for 60 days or longer during those six years would be forced to leave the country. (Employers could petition for permanent residency on behalf of their employees six months after the worker entered into the program”.)
