Let the immigration debate begin

January 28, 2013 -  By

It appears that the Great Immigration Debate of 2013 is about to begin in Washington, no doubt leaving many in the landscape industry on the edge of their seats until a bill is signed into law.

A bipartisan group of eight senators said it has drafted a deal that would lead to a chance at citizenship for most of 11 million immigrants in the U.S. illegally, The New York Times reports.

The senators plan to unveil their plan today, a day before President Obama is set to reveal his immigration proposals in Las Vegas.

Let the debate begin, and let’s hope lawmakers reach the “tough, fair and practical” bill the senators are promising in a timely matter. –Marisa Palmieri
