Gutiérrez: Immigration Reform Is Coming

La Opinión, Posted: Dec 11, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Rep. Luis Gutiérrez, D-Ill., confirmed in an interview with La Opinión/Impremedia that he plans to introduce his immigration reform bill next Tuesday, Dec. 15. This was a change from the original date of Dec. 17 when he had planned to introduce the bill. Gutiérrez did not give additional details about the bill. In October and November, he spoke publicly about the fundamental principles that serve as the basis for his reform bill. Among them are protecting American and immigrant workers, providing enough visas to diminish undocumented immigration, strengthening border security, keeping families together, and including the DREAM Act and AgJobs. Gutiérrez has said that the bill would not include language requiring people to return to their countries to get a visa, that young people should not have to pay fees, and that agricultural workers should have an independent path to legalization.
