House Democrats Hold "Special Order" for Immigration Reform Today

Share This:

It has now been three weeks since the Senate passed a bipartisan immigration reform bill with a path to citizenship by a 68-32 vote, with the House still appearing disinclined to make meaningful action anytime soon.

Today, a number of House Democrats are taking a stand on the House floor to speak on the economic benefits of immigration reform and to push their colleagues to take action on reform with a pathway to citizenship.  They’re calling the event a “Special Order for House Freshmen on Economic Benefits of Immigration Reform.”
