New Jersey Immigration Attorney Lloyd E. Bennett has recently discussed
immigration reform with the movers and shakers in this state's government
system. On April 11, 2013, Attorney Bennett attended the National Day
of Action in Washington, DC, where he and other members of the New Jersey
chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA-NJ) met
with New Jersey's Senate and House members and their aids to discuss
immigration reform and how it will affect local community members. In
addition to that, the lawyer also attended a rally on Capitol Hill that
had more than 10,000 attendees. We are extremely fortunate to have Robert
Menendez as our senator, as he is among the influential leaders in the
immigration reform debate. Sen. Menendez is among the "Gang of Eight,"
or the eight senators who are behind the bill.
The new immigration reform bill is proposed legislation that attempts to
fix America's broken immigration system. The bill would create a pathway
to citizenship for about 11 million illegal immigrants, according to a recent
CBS article that outlines some of the latest developments for support behind the bill.
It also proposes various other changes to the nation's immigration
system, such as a the creation of a low-skilled guest-worker program,
an increase in the number of visas that would be available for high-tech
workers, de-emphasis on the significance of family ties in the immigration
process and other provisions. There is also much discussion about where
the new legislation will stand on border security measures.
Only time will tell what the future of the immigration system will look
like. In the meantime, if you need help with any immigration-related issues,
