Along with President Obama’s re-election in November 2013 came a renewed interest in immigration policies by many Republican leaders. Historically, the Democrats have been the congressional party members who have introduced, supported, and voted upon bills to effectuate positive immigration legislation. In a time where party politics is more important than ever, in order to stay relevant, many Republicans are now reaching out to their Hispanic voting constituents. With Republicans softening their previous stance of opposition towards immigration, the two parties may reach an agreement rendering more hopeful the prospect of immigration reform policies in the near future. For those seeking clarification about or protection under the current immigration laws, 2014 promises to be an eventful year.
Perhaps most promising is the fact that Senators Schumer, McCain, Durbin, Graham, Menendez, Rubio, Bennet, and Flake have been working on a bipartisan framework for comprehensive immigration reform. Several of the immigration proposals would increase paths to citizenship in addition to expanding the terms of work visas. As such, many of the undocumented individuals living in the United States will be able to come out of the shadows and “cure” their immigration status in the United States.
