Citizenship for 11 million illegal residents cause of contention

Posted on September 4th, 2013 No Comments

With the proposed national immigration reform bill hot on Congress’s agenda, the contending question that needs to be resolved is whether the 11 million immigrants already in the U.S. should be allowed citizenship or not.

Several House Republicans are of the opinion that people who illegally crossed the border or overstayed their visas should not be fixed with a tailor-made solution to become instant American citizens, and that such a process should be reserved for those people who want to undergo the process through legal channels. On the other hand, many others believe that these illegal residents should have some sort of pathway to obtaining citizenship.

Congress returns to session on September 9, with the House on its way to vote on the crucial bill. The Democratic-controlled Senate already passed its own version of the bill last June, with main provisions including border security, a revamp of the legal immigration system, and a 13-year path to citizenship for immigrants already in the country.
