Immigration Reform Bill introduced in Congress

Representative Luis V. Gutierrez, Democrat of Illinois, introduced a bill in Congress yesterday to reform US immigration laws. The bill's introduction is seen as a reaction to President Obama's delay in starting his proposed immigration reform measures. It is unlikely that the bill will pass, however, as it contains provisions similar to an amnesty for undocumented immigrants. Anything resembling an amnesty provision is strongly opposed by many in Congress. 

See the New York Times article on the bill here.
