House to Consider Legislation The House is expected to consider a series of bills dealing with various aspects of immigration reform during the fall. What it is not expected to do is to consider the Senate version of immigration reform. Underlying much of the differences is the belief on the part of many Republicans that border security is a priority. In the past, immigration reform legislation promised border security, but it was not delivered, and that is the reason immigration reform is needed once again.

Some of the other key issues the House will deal with are the “Dream Act” kids, rather than relying on the President’s Deferred Action plan, increasing the number of agricultural and skilled workers, without necessarily including a path to citizenship, and increasing the use of E-Verify for all businesses.

Hopefully, the Senate and House will find a way to come together in a manner that produces thoughtful legislation which preserves the rule of law and at the same time deals realistically with a problem that has been ignored far too long.
