Immigration Legislation and Issues in the 109th Congress

Description:

While major 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
