posted by Randall

Rep Judy ChuThe chair of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus is calling the new Immigration Reform Bill the “first substantive step toward effecting real change.”

“It represents the best chance in a generation to help aspiring Americans fulfill their dreams of becoming our fellow citizens.” said Rep Judy Chu.

She said under the bill, the backlog of visas for many Asian American communities could be cleared in 8 years.

“We called for a legal permanent resident provision, allowing the family members of green card holders to come here without delay, and this bill provides one. And when we called on the Senate negotiators directly to ensure parents maintain the right to bring their children here, they modified the bill accordingly”
