WOULD THERE BE A LAW THAT GOING TO BE IN EFFECT FOR IMMIGRANTS IN 2012
Maybe; maybe not. There is no way to know what Congress may do. Many people believe that we will not see any real change in the laws unless President Obama is re-elected, with a Democratic majority in both the Senate and the House. Others are less pessimistic and believe that bi-partisan legislation can and will be worked-out in the next Congress.
What this all means is that it's anyones guess as to what the future may hold. All we can do is keep our fingers crossed, hope for the best, and keep the pressure on Congress to make some meaningful reforms.
Happy holidays and good luck
I doubt our dysfunctional government will pass any serious legislation during a heated election year. There is a much better likelihood in 2013 - after the American voters change the current Congress. I suggest doing whatever you can to vote out those who are in the way of a much needed immigration reform - if we have a GOP president - who knows!
