Immigration Reform 2013 Faces Challenges in House


With the passage of the new immigration reform bill in the Senate, the challenge now is whether or not it will pass in the House because Republicans hold the majority in the House and they are opposed to the new bill. Some say Republicans may not approve it because the bill does not strengthen border security and rewards undocumented immigrants by granting citizenship.

Republicans also favor the piecemeal approach rather than the holistic idea. The House bill was planned to be released in June, but now is expected to be released sometime during this month. On July 10, the House Republican Conference will meet up in the Capitol basement to discuss the immigration reform bill.
