Many members of the House on both sides of the aisle have expressed the need to pass legislation fixing our broken immigration system. While the Senate took action by passing S. 744, the House has yet to pass a single bill to reform our immigration system. With 22 legislative days remaining until the House adjourns for its August recess, the urgency for action mounts as a key window for action closes.

Recap of immigration reform action by the U.S. House of Representatives for the day ending June 18, 2014:

Bills passed: 0

 

It has been 356 days since the Senate passed S. 744 with no action by the full House.

As June 18, 2014, there are only 22 scheduled legislative days left to pass immigration reform before the House adjourns for its August recess.
