Immigration Bill Gets Mixed Review

Wall Street Journal (04/18/13) Sara Murray; Miriam Jordan

As the “Gang of Eight” U.S. senators released full details of a bill to overhaul immigration, outside groups quickly launched efforts to tweak it in their favor—or to derail it entirely. The measure lays out plans to legalize some 11 million unauthorized immigrants living in the U.S. and to spend at least $4.5 billion more on border security, but the authors say some provisions may be altered.

Many groups—high-tech organizations, farmworker groups, large companies, and immigration advocates—applauded the bill before offering their wish lists of ways to change it. Immigration advocates raised alarms about a provision that requires beefed-up border security and employment verification before steps to legalize undocumented immigrants can kick in. Groups hoping to limit immigration, meanwhile, vowed to intensify their efforts to defeat the bill.
