A House of Many Rooms: The Different Paths to Citizenship
"It is so refreshingly wonderful to think that what was once unthinkable could become a possibility – a bill to comprehensively reform our broken immigration system. Even the House Judiciary Committee held a hearing last Tuesday, where there was a willingness to legalize the 10+ million undocumented population, when in the past the tunnel vision mindset of the GOP controlled House was to find ways to either deport them or make it hard for them to remain in the US. The fault line of contention in the debate is whether to grant a pathway to citizenship or not for those who will be able to legalize their status." - Gary Endelman and Cyrus D. Mehta, Feb. 8, 2013.
