Comprehensive Immigration Reform Introduced in Congress

January 9th, 2007

Senator Reid (D-NV) of the 110th Congress introduced the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007 (S. 9) on January 4, 2007.  However, this is merely a “placeholder” bill containing only a “Sense of the Congress” statement.  It will soon be amended to include a comprehensive immigration reform proposal concerning more effective border and employment enforcement, the prevention of illegal immigration and the reform of avenues for legal immigration.
