    In June 2013, the U.S. Senate voted 68-32 in favor of comprehensive immigration reform, representing a monumental step forward for reform that will do right by the American economy and American families. Senators from across the political spectrum showed that they are willing to come together in a productive, bipartisan way in an incredibly tough political climate, amid continuing gridlock – and we applaud their courage in doing so. We will continue to advocate for commonsense principles that we believe must be represented in comprehensive reform efforts: Tough, effective border security measures, including providing law enforcement the tools they need to secure the border; A simple and effective employment verification system to ensure that employers play by the rules, and to crack down on those who abuse the law; Modifications to the new worker program to include an increase in the number of H-1B visas to attract the world’s best and the brightest workers, while implementing reforms that encourage this talent to reside permanently in the U.S.; Establishing a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States who do not have legal status; and Reforming the legal immigration system to better strengthen the American economy and American families. FWD.us will continue to advocate for comprehensive, bipartisan reform that will attract innovators, build prosperous neighborhoods with strong families and good jobs, and ensure the U.S. continues to lead the world in the growth of the knowledge economy.

    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.

    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.

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

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