Evangelicals Announce Ad Buy Urging Republicans to Back Immigration Overhaul

When House GOP leaders return, they’ll face decisions on whether and how to move ahead this fall with the five immigration bills that have cleared the Judiciary and Homeland Security committees. Those measures deal with border security (HR 1417), state and local immigration enforcement (HR 2278), employment verification (HR 1772), agricultural guest workers (HR 1773) and high-tech worker visas (HR 2131).

Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Judiciary Chairman Robert W. Goodlatte, both Virginia Republicans, are working on another bill, tentatively labeled the “KIDS Act,” that would grant legal status or citizenship to young people brought to the country illegally as children.
