On June 27, 2013, the U.S. Senate passed Senate Bill 744: Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act by a 68-32 Senate vote. This bi-partisan bill, commonly known as the Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) bill, seeks to bring about comprehensive immigration reform in the United States.
The CIR bill covers a complete range of immigration matters, from border and enforcement actions to legal immigration reforms. It provides for a number of changes to U.S. immigration policies and procedures, including:
Members of the House of Representatives have criticized the CIR bill asserting that a comprehensive act is not the appropriate way to address immigration reform in the U.S. The House is focusing on a “piecemeal approach” to achieve immigration reform. While neither the CIR bill nor any other comprehensive immigration reform has been passed into law, every Maryland criminal immigration attorney at our firm is closely monitoring all trends and developments involving U.S. immigration laws and reform.
