senate Bill S. 744

The "Gang of Eight" Immigration Reform Bill

Argument in favor

Immigration reform needs to be passed right now, and the most effective way to do that is including all these different provisions of our broken immigration system in one bill.

Comprehensive immigration reform is the best opportunity to encourage high-skilled labor, treat fairly the undocumented community, and protect U.S. borders all at once.

If all requirements are met then I see no reason to deny citizenship to qualified individuals.

This bipartisan bill deserves to be debated again in the Senate, and voted on in the House.

Argument opposed

A bill this bloated is likely riddled with provisions that will have to be un-done at a later date. Approaching immigration reform one facet at a time will not only be more understandable, but it will gain more support.

Immigration reform is required but this bill is not it. No path to citizenship....a semi perminent green card may be ok. must track who is here and remove those who violate us law.
