NewsFlash! White House Unveils Proposed Immigration Reform Plan to Congress

This evening, the Trump Administration sent Congress a proposal for an immigration reform bill that would provide relief to 1.8 million “dreamers” (i.e. undocumented foreign nationals brought to the United States as children), while also providing funding for a U.S. / Mexico border wall and eliminating most forms of family-based immigration.

It is important to understand that this is merely a proposal by the White House. Only the Congress has the right to draft and pass legislation. At this point, there is little reason to believe that the two branches of Congress – the U.S. House and Senate – will be able to reach an agreement on any type of immigration reform. But, in the event that Congress is able to pass such a bill, it very well could be substantially different from what the President has proposed.

The Murthy Law Firm will continue to closely monitor the efforts to change U.S. immigration law. Details will be reported on MurthyDotCom, as warranted.
