Bill markup is a crucial step towards passage of the bill in the Senate. There are many amendments for and against our provisions. So this process will be critical to determine which of our provisions will make into the final bill.

SEC. 2306. Still has the effective date as one year from enactment of the act, unless I am misreading it.

Things are moving too quickly, and we do not have the bandwidth to provide summary of each amendment. Please do your on research and provide summary of the amendments you can review.

Hatch #8 amendment has the provision to clarify the effective date as 1st Oct 2014.

If they put a simple amendment of jailing and fining any employer caught employing an undocumented immigrant, it will solve most problem. It will be a huge deterrence to every employer. If license can be cancelled, can be jailed and fined........nobody will dare employ an undocumented. They will use E-Verify system before employing anyone.

But they will not do it. Why do you want to punish poor immigrants for illegal acts of employers? Close the loophole of cheap labor attraction and you will save billions of dollars and country, jobs will be secure!

Hatch's Amendment 8 proposes Country cap removal effective FY2014 ie 1st Oct 2013
I believe dependents cap removal and EB2/EB3 quota increase to each 40% is effective on bill enacting day ie ASAP only even in the original bill no amendment is necessary
If Hatch's 8 amendment is accepted pending EB3/EB2 guys are in good shape.

Does this mean this amendment is dead?:confused:

Can you not read online news to learn what is going on? Why you need spoon feed for everything?

Amendments to the bill will go on for next 1 or 2 weeks. Next markup session is on Tuesday when they will take up more amendments.
