  • Jan 15 - The President's CIR Plan

    Comment: The President's CIR Plan
    According to the New York Times, President Obama plans to push Congress to act quickly and efficiently in order to mend our nation's broken immigration system. He will propose, along with Senate Democrats, one comprehensive immigration bill that includes a path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the country, imposing a verification system of legal status for all workers that have been newly hired in the country, adding visas nationwide in order to alleviate the massive backlog of immigrants currently waiting, and create a guest-worker program for low-wage workers. This plan will benefit not only low-wage workers in the agricultural sector, but also young undocumented immigrants, higher-skilled immigrants, and, without a doubt, our nation and its economy. Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) notes, "this is so important now to both parties that neither the fiscal cliff nor guns will get in the way," as a response to critics who have argued that immigration might take a backseat to other issues that have recently emerged. Of course, as history may verify, the planning may not amount to anything unless there is substantial bipartisan effort to finally solve our immigration woes. Share your thoughts about President Obama’s intended plans by writing to editor@ilw.com.
