Green card document.

Asked over 1 year ago - Los Angeles, CA

As the immigration bill is proposed today yet it has not become a law.

Can the law makers "pick and choose the clauses" when they sit to deliberate or "if passed it has to be passed as proposed in totality"?

    Answered . No, it can be amended, and changed. So in essence, there will have to be a compromise. It is hard to imagine that it will be passed as is.

    Answered . The legislative process is complex and often the end product, i.e. the law that passes through Congress, has little resemblance to the original bill. There are riders, line items, etc. Stay tuned, as we are a long way from the passing of the Immigration Reform Act.
