Picture of Cartoon Bill

Yesterday, House Democrats tried to inject a sense of urgency into the immigration reform debate by releasing a comprehensive reform bill.  The House Democratic bill is identical to the one that passed the Senate before the July 4th holiday, except it includes a border security section that the House Homeland Security Committee passed during the summer.  Will this bill become law?  Not probable as House Republicans are unlikely to take up legislation proposed by Democrats, but it is an effort to push the debate and move the process.  Western Growers welcomes any effort to move the ball forward in this debate.  For stories that contain more details on what was introduced CLICK HERE and HERE.
