Discussion on Immigration Reform at National Day of Action Event
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.
