We all know the basic building blocks of any comprehensive immigration reform bill. They have not changed in years. The five key elements of any reform bill are:
Legislation to strengthen protections for employees and retirees under chapter 9 municipality bankruptcy and to prevent termination of vital utilities for individuals in bankruptcy
The House voted 286 to 138 to pass the Senate version of VAWA, which included critical protections for the LGBT, immigrant, Native American communities and expands protections for campus security, and reduced the backlog for domestic violence evidence kits.
The 2012 election cycle saw unprecedented amounts of money flood the political system and alter the political landscape at the federal level. Voters were required to endure long lines and complained of election irregularities. Our commitment to reform election laws remains high.
The need to reform our broken immigration system is just such a challenge. The need to bring millions of undocumented immigrants out of the shadows and onto a path to citizenship and to protect families from being torn apart is one of the most pressing civil rights issues we face today.
