Good morning, Jim,
In response to President Obama’s decision to change deportation priorities and to allow some undocumented immigrants to get work authorization, House Republicans introduced legislation last week to not only prevent the President’s proposed 2015 changes, but to also undo the original grant of Deferred Action to the so-called DREAMers. The GOP leaders want to deport them instead. The move is tied to funding for the Department of Homeland Security. While it may pass the House, it seems very unlikely to make it out of the Senate. Meanwhile, the country waits for real immigration reform.
That’s all for this week.
Last week, we started new mailbag email series called Jimmigration where readers can submit questions for us to answer regarding U.S. immigration issues. If you would like to submit a question, please simply reply to this email.
