Senator Durbin Immigration Roundtable

IRA President Sam Toia participated in a round table discussion on immigration reform with Senator Dick Durbin on Monday, February 4th at Instituto del Progreso Latino in Pilsen.  Senator Durbin outlined principles of immigration reform that are likely to be considered this year.

Those principals include a path to citizenship after dealing with border security, green cards for immigrants with advanced degrees, and looking into employer penalties.  The legislation is still early in the planning process.

Sam Toia voiced the industry’s concern about employers being required to become documentarians.  Senator Durbin acknowledged this as an important issue.
