Anxiety fills Democrats regarding immigration reform bill as 2013’s session close nears

Posted on September 20th, 2013 No Comments

Congressional Democrats are still hoping that Congress may be able to pass a law on immigration reform that would pave the way for the 11 million illegal immigrants already in the United States to become naturalized citizens. However, they admitted that time might be running out and the issue might not be worked out until next year, or even longer than that, if Republicans in the House still fail to pass its own version of the bill approved by the Senate last June.

U.S. Rep. Filemon Vela (Democrat-Brownsville) said budget issues, the debt ceiling, and the government shutdown will likely fill the agenda on the floor, and that discussions regarding the Syria conflict have already eaten into Congress’s schedule.

According to the House calendar, Congress will only have nine more weeks of session for the year since its resumption on September 9 before it goes on break again.
