« Update from the Senate 5/17/06 | Main | Orange Card Program Amendment by California Senator Dianne Feinstein »

May 18, 2006

The Senate debate on Comprehensive Immigration Reform remains in full swing

On Thursday morning, an amendment from Senator Kennedy (D-MA) passed, restoring some of the options for green card self-sponsorship by H-2C temporary workers that were stripped from S.2611 due to passage of an amendment on Wednesday by Senator Cornyn (R-TX). This positive development is due, in part, to YOUR efforts! But the work is not over! It remains imperative that you continue to call your Senators and urge them to oppose bad amendments that gut the meritorious provisions in S.2611; support the positive amendments that will be considered; and, in general, support a bipartisan, comprehensive bill that includes a path to permanent status for the current undocumented population.
