The U.S. Senate passed a comprehensive, bipartisan immigration bill on June 27 that would provide a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants, increase border security, revamp U.S. visa programs, and create a program for low-skilled, nonfarm workers through an agreement between the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the AFL-CIO. However, many observers are doubtful that the U.S. House will take up a similar bipartisan bill, especially given that many Republicans want proof that border security measures are effective before giving undocumented immigrants legal status.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) voted against the bill, and some believe his stance will encourage House Republicans to oppose an immigration bill there. Meanwhile, Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) does not believe a comprehensive, bipartisan bill is possible, but he believes individual bills could eventually be passed.
