FCNL Submits Statement on Comprehensive Immigration Reform to Subcommittee

The Subcommittee on Immigration, Refugees, and Border Security (in the Committee on the Judiciary, in the Senate) will be holding a hearing on "Comprehensive Immigration Reform: Faith-Based Perspectives." The hearing was originally scheduled for tomorrow, but has been postponed because of the ongoing mark-ups of the health care bill in the Senate Finance Committee. No new date has yet been selected.

However, FCNL has submitted a statement to the subcommittee, which will go on the record for the hearing. This statement in support of comprehensive immigration reform is available on the FCNL website. It outlines our organization's priorities regarding immigration reform.

Senator Charles E. Schumer (NY) is the chair of the subcommittee, and it is expected that he will be the one to put forward a bill in the Senate on comprehensive immigration reform.
