Congress out of Session for Memorial Day Recess

After completing a first week of debate on the Secure Borders, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Reform Act of 2007 (S. 1348), the Senate adjourned on Friday, May 25, for the Memorial Day recess. When Congress reconvenes next Monday, June 4, the Senate is expected to resume debate on immigration reform and begin consideration of critical amendments that could make or break the bill. A vote on final passage of S. 1348 could take place toward the end of the Senate's second week of immigration debate, around June 7-8.

Meanwhile, on the House side, the Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security, and International Law is expected to wrap up its series of hearings on immigration reform after the recess. If the Senate passes an immigration reform bill in early June, the House Immigration Subcommittee will likely proceed with markup hearings on its own bill later that same month. It is not yet clear whether the Subcommittee would use an existing bill as the basis for its markup or begin anew with legislation crafted by subcommittee members.
