Sampan: Chances for immigration reform grow bleak

Statue of LibertyThe Affordable Care Act has gotten off to a stumbling start, the government shutdown has came and went and immigration reform is clearly in need of a lifeline.

It’s been five months since the Senate sent the immigration bill to the House where it seems to be just sitting there.

“If we cannot get [immigration reform] done by early next year, then it’s clearly dead.” Rep Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Florida) is quoted by Sampan as saying.

While President Obama has stated immigration will be his top legislative priority moving forward,  analyst say  his misstatement about health reform has sidetracked his attention.

According to Asian American civil rights leaders, the current immigration system disproportionately negatively impacts Asian Americans. You can read about that in Sampan.
