The Current Immigration Reform Legislation

Justice For  Our Neighbors-Nebraska captures the feelings of many who have been advocating for Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Emiliano Lerda, Executive Director of  JFON-NE says

(We are)  encouraged by the bi-partisan immigration reform bill released … that provides a path to citizenship for millions  of aspiring Americans in the U.S. who are currently without options.  It is clear that the current immigration system is broken; and the Senate bill S.744, titled “Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013,” is a step in the right  direction.

Charles Ellison, Regional Attorney of Justice For Our Neighbors-Nebraska, continues by stating:

although this compromise  measure does not contain all the changes we would like to see, it would produce many positive changes and we believe it is a great start to the process of  overhauling a system that has long needed repair.
