Congress Returns to Talk of Immigration

9/17/2010
Other Updates

​Congress returned from its August recess on September 14, 2010 and already immigration discussions are percolating on the Hill. Calls for Senators Durbin (D-IL) and Lugar's (R--IN) DREAM Act (S.729) to be attached to the Defense Authorization bill as early as the week of September 20th are on-going, even though the Defense bill may not be considered by the Senate until a lame duck session. ACIP continues to support the DREAM Act and our letters to key Congressmen in the Senate and House are attached to this update. Additionally, Senator Menendez (D-NJ) has announced his intention to introduce a comprehensive reform bill as early as October. ACIP is in touch with the Senator Menendez's office on key issues of importance.
