Immigration Legislation Issues in the 109th Congress

Description:

While immigration reform proposals remain pending, Congress has enacted
limited provisions on temporary and permanent employment-based immigration as
part of P.L. 109-13. It also has enacted legislation concerning alien victims of
domestic violence, trafficking in persons, and refugees. This report discusses these
and other immigration-related issues that have seen legislative action or are of
significant congressional interest. DHS appropriations and immigration legislation
related to Hurricane Katrina are covered in other products and are not discussed
here. The final section of the report lists enacted legislation and selected bills
receiving action.
