Immigration Reform Prospects for 2014
With 2014 just around the corner, many foreigners around the world are eager for news regarding immigration reform. 2013 was a rollercoaster ride of both hope and frustration for immigration in Washington, but three specific events help provide optimism for the coming year. First, President Obama declared in his State of the Union address that “the time has come to pass comprehensive immigration reform.” Second, the Senate passed revolutionary immigration restructure with unparalleled support. Finally, there was a bill presented in the House that stalled record levels of deportations. Although none of this has made any remarkable nation altering history, all these signs and more point towards January being a major period for governmental involvement in immigration.
Merely a few years ago, immigrants were considered astonishingly brave for publicly announcing their undocumented statuses. Now, those very same individuals are the leaders in marches and rallies across the nation. Collectively, these shadowed individuals have blossomed into activists that are slowly turning immigration reform from an issue into a full-fledged movement. These tides towards governmental policy reform and newly developed political activism from minority parties are all steps towards the right direction, but don’t necessarily guarantee an easy transition in 2014. Conservatives are quick to point out that the Government fails to tackle huge problems in recent times, yet Obama has repeatedly brought up an interest in approaching immigration.
Currently, a clear majority of Americans continue to support immigration reform that sets a path to citizenship for undocumented parties. Although immigration reform is an issue that will never truly die in this nation, there are very clear-cut reasons to be optimistic that very serious changes are imminent.
