Yesterday, hundreds of immigrants that reside in the United States met in Washington to attend a concentration before Congress, to ask for the cessation of deportations and discuss the so desired immigration reform, upon which depends the legal destiny of the 11.5 million undocumented.
After nearly a decade of failed attempts, eight senators, four Republicans and four Democrats, would be on the verge of achieving a bipartisan solution that would reform the system of immigration in this country, once the details of the Bill are completed.
Among one of the proposals within this project, is the legalization for the undocumented, which will privilege the economic interests of the country on the quotas of workers.
The immigrants hope that the immigration reform will also resume the famous ‘Dream Act’, a legislative proposal that was not approved by the Capitol, which will allow the legalization of the undocumented young people who came to the United States.UU. before turning 16, and that already have coursed two years of college or have joined the armed forces.
Senators may submit their project from today until next week, and this should be first considered by the Senate Judiciary Committee and then submitted to the plenary, likewise to the House of Representatives. If both organisms pass different versions, it shall convene the Committee of Conference to adjust them until they reach President Barack Obama to enact it or veto it, and will become law only if he signs it.
The law is expected with anxiety by thousands of Ecuadorians living ilegally for several years in various North American cities.
