Activists urge House Whip to act on immigration bill in upcoming session

Posted on August 23rd, 2013 No Comments

Around 1,500 activists arrived at the third-ranking House Republican’s congressional district in Bakersfield, California on August 14 to encourage action on the national comprehensive immigration reform bill, demanding a vote on it this fall when congressmen return from a five-week summer recess.

According to Korean Resource Center executive director Hee Joo Yoon, they would like to “send a clear message” to House Whip Kevin McCarthy, seeking that he takes action on the citizenship bill.

The GOP-led House of Representatives failed to make a decision on sweeping immigration measures, including eventual citizenship for 11 million immigrants already in the United States illegally, before the end of the last session. The Senate had already passed its version of the bill in June, which included funding for border security, different visa and workplace enforcement measures, and a 13-year road to citizenship.

Congressmen have refused to pass a single, unified bill, saying they will take these issues by piece, starting with border security.
