The new immigration reform bill allowing a pathway for citizenship and legal status for 11 million undocumented immigrants faces challenges as it awaits for approval in the House. GOP’s reasoning for its opposition is that reforming the immigration law is not necessary to repair the party’s problems with Hispanic voters and they are unwilling to hand Obama an easy victory. Republican sentiments are the only components preventing the bill from passing at this point. They are opposed to the idea of letting those who came illegally gain citizenship while others who try for many years waiting in line to get citizenship legally still don’t have citizenship. As the debate continues, Democrats continue pushing to pass the immigration reform bill this summer.
