Recap on S. 744 Immigration Reform
July 17, 2014 § Leave a comment
In June 2013 the Senate passed S. 744 Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act. On 10/2/13 House Democrats introduced H.R. 15, “The Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act.” H.R. 15 is a comprehensive immigration reform bill modeled on Senate bill S.744, but replaces the controversial “border-surge” amendment with the McCaul bipartisan border security bill that passed unanimously out of the House Homeland Security Committee.
The House does not expect to pass this bill this year.
