Default Any Schedule of H1B/L1 reform bill introduced in the Senate

Does anyone have any idea if the H1B/L1 reform bill that was introduced in April is going to be brought forward for discussion at the Senate committee on Judiciary (or the immigration subcommitee).


From my understanding, usually the process is : Bill introduced in Senate -> Senate Judiciary Commitee vote - > Full Senate vote -> sent to House -> House Judiciary commitee vote -> Full House vote ->House/Senate Conference if required - > Full Congress vote -> sent to President

Chances of this bill going forward right now is very minimal. Even though senaors introduced this bill they may knew in advance that it is not going forward. This was to just create a fear among immigrants and make happy their voters.

Since 1-2 years none of single bill has passed in congress related to immigration. If CIR comes with in year then there is a good chance that they will add this stuff into CIR. They will definately push this into CIR. I see movement for health care reform now. Also as health care reform gets delayed chances for CIR are minimal this year. Health care reform is a fresh topic and it will take lots of time to discuss. Like CIR in 2006 , 2007 took lot time on floor for discussion. So lets see where we go from here ?

I am not sure if this is right time for piece meal approach for stuff like recaprute , country cap , STEM exemption. May be senior members or Core have idea when to push forward.

Yes looks like Health Care reform is the top priority and I think Congress and the administration will target this for the summer.

There has been no legislative news coming in from Congress or the administration about CIR ...Altough I read somewhere ta statement by Sen. Reid the Senate majority leader , about discussing immigration reform and pushing for it by Fall or so..


I found this on AILA's website:
http://www.aila.org/content/default.aspx?docid=28810

Obama Administration Continues to Signal its Push for Comprehensive Immigration Reform
Cite as "AILA InfoNet Doc. No. 09050763 (posted May. 7, 2009)"


Washington, DC - The Obama Administration once again signaled just how serious it is about resolving this nation's broken immigration system. Yesterday, during a Senate oversight hearing Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, not only testified about her plans to protect the country's borders and enforce our immigration laws in smarter and more effective ways but she also reiterated her support for the DREAM Act, just as she did as Governor of Arizona. Later in the day, senior White House officials convened a special conference call with immigration reform leaders and unveiled a $27 billion plan for border and transportation security as part of the 2010 budget that President Obama plans to present to Congress today.

"Overall, this was another positive day in the movement towards comprehensive immigration reform," said Charles H. Kuck, President of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). "President Obama continues to steer his administration in the direction of comprehensive immigration reform, the Secretary's statements and the elements of the President's budget that were presented indicate to us that a serious debate on comprehensive immigration reform is on track for this year."

"The President's budget goes beyond smart enforcement strategies to recognize the importance of investing in immigrants," added Kuck. "The Obama Administration gets it. What's taking shape is an administration that continues to prove itself to be forward thinking and strategic. Clearly a targeted and effective immigration enforcement process, with accountability and oversight, sets the stage for Congress to address immigration reform later this year."
