With a new President will come new approach to immigration,but the question is whether his or her approach will be comprehensive. It is likely that whomever the Democratic nominee will be he or she will favor a comprehensive approach to immigration reform. Something a long the lines of S.744 the bi-partisan bill that passed the Senate in 2013 but was never taken up by the House. What will happen on the Republican side is less clear. Many candidates have either in the past or presently favor immigration reform. They have a variety of goals, and it remains to be seen what they will propose. Irrespective of who wins the nomination, it is unlikely that new legislation, let alone, a comprehensive one will be addressed during a Presidential campaign. The new President’s first day in office will be January 20, 2017. We are not likely to see comprehensive immigration reform prior to 2017. However, I am hopeful that there can still be some immigration reform to our badly broken system during President Obama’s term in office.
