Comprehensive Immigration Reform Introduced in Congress
5/4/2004 5:25 PM

Senator Kennedy (D-MA), Representatives Menendez (D-NJ) and Gutierrez (D-IL), and others on Tuesday, May 4, introduced in the House and Senate a comprehensive immigration reform bill. The Safe, Orderly, Legal Visas and Enforcement Act (The SOLVE Act) would establish an earned adjustment of status program, enabling immigrants who have been in the United States for five or more years on date of introduction (May 4, 2004) and can demonstrate 2 years in aggregate of employment (including self-employment) in the U.S. and payment of taxes to adjust their status to lawful permanent resident.  The proposed legislation would also help eliminate ever-growing backlogs for family reunification visa categories. To learn more about the proposed legislation, visit the American Immigration Lawyers Association at or click on the link below.
