What about President Obama’s Promise for Immigration Reform?

leave a comment »

Whether President Obama will be able to deliver on his campaign promise of Immigration reform remains to be seen.  President Obama says he still remains committed to comprehensive Immigration Reform but says”it is a matter of political will”.
It is encouraging to see an emerging immigration proposal which has been proposed last month by Senators Harry Reid (D-NV), Richard Durbin (D-IL), Charles Schumer (D-NY), Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), and Robert Menendez (D-NJ). The proposal requires undocumented immigrants to register with the government, tougher enforcement at the border, tougher sanctions for employers that hire unauthorized immigrations, tougher enforcement in our workplaces and creating a visa system that protects labor rights. The proposal also requires undocumented workers to pay fines, taxes, and civil penalties, learn English, and other rigorous requirements in order to legalize.
Our Attorney, Hanishi Ali, commented on this issue in the Indus Business Journal’s most recent issue. For the full article see: http://www.mithraslaw.com/docs/RENEGING%20REFORM_IBJ_04262010.pdf
