Election of Obama and Democratic Congress Increases Chances of Success for Comprehensive Immigration Reform Next Year

The stunning election of Barack Obama for President and the strong gains made by the Democratic Party in Congress will boost chances for Comprehensive Immigration Reform next year. Of course, immigration reform will not be a top priority, and the continuing economic crisis together with a high rate of unemployment may cloud the prospects for passage of a comprehensive package. However, even if a comprehensive package is not passed next year, the chances are excellent for the passage of piece meal solutions such as EB vias recapture; Nurses and Physical Therapists bill; AG Jogs and the DREAM Act. See Business Week Online for the interview of ELI KANTOR on this topic, and stay tuned to this blog for the latest updates.
