NumbersUSA obtained a summary of the "compromise" negotiated among Republicans Tuesday night. The language is theirs, not ours. We do not know how discussions between Republicans and Democrats have changed the plan, or if it is still a factor in the debate.

Hagel/Martinez Amendment

Background:

The Hagel/Martinez Substitute contains all the provisions of the Specter Amendment - including the border security, interior security and employer enforcement provisions from the Frist bill - but makes the following 3 changes:

1. It proposes an alternative to Title VI, Subtitle A of the Specter substitute (which deals with the illegal population living in the U.S.)

2. It temporarily increases the number of employment based green cards from 290,000 (as in the Specter Substitute) to 450,000. This increase from 290,000 to 450,000 would sunset after ten years.

3. It would give mid-term illegal immigrants (defined below) priority in applying for green cards over future immigrants entering as temporary workers.

The Hagel/Martinez Amendment is based on legislation (S.1919) introduced by Senator Hagel in October 2005.

Legal or illegal, NumbersUSA gang doesn't care. They just want foreigners out. If they had their way they would stop immigration tomorrow. While other countries are increasing legal employment based immigration they're trying to shut it down here. They'll realize their folly only when it's too late.
