The Washington Post recently ran an article by Rosalind S. Heldermand and David Nakamura titled Senate group near accord on immigration.

The article states that a “working group of senators from both parties is nearing agreement on broad pricipiles for overhauling the nation’s immigration laws, representing the most substantive bipartisan effort toward compresentive legislation in years.”

Apparently this group, which has an equal number of Democrats and Republicans  has a basic agreement on many of the core principles that would make up this comprehensive immigration reform.

“The working group’s principles would address stricter border control, better employer verification of workers’ immigration status, new visas for temporary agriculture workers and expanding the number of visas available for skilled engineers.  They would also include a call to help young people who were brought to the country illegally as children by their parents become citizens and to normalize the status of the nation’s 11 million illegal immigrants.”

The timetable “would aim for a bill to be written by March or April and potentially considered for final passage in the Senate as early as the summer.  Proponents believe adoption in the GOP held House would be made easier with a strong bipartisan vote in the Senate.”

If approved by the House and Senate it would appear that the President would sign it and it would become law.  The article says: “President Barack Obama will travel to Las Vegas on Tuesday to speak about the need to “fix the broken immigration system this year.””   The article, quoting White House press secretary Jay Carney, also states that: “The President  has made clear that he intends to act very quickly…I’m not going to hem him in by putting a timetable on it, but I think you can expect him to be true to his word, which is to take up this issue very early in his second term. “

It appears that there will be reforms in immigration law over the next several months.  Stay tuned.
