Placeholder Senate Bill for Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Sen. Reid has introduced a placeholder for immigration reform. It is Bill #9 in the list of Senate Democratic priorities, behind stimulus, economy, health care, energy etc.

Only time will tell whether it will come to anything or when, but at least it is there. The text of the placeholder bill is as follows:

S. 9

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,


This Act may be cited as the “Stronger Economy, Stronger Borders Act of 2009”.


It is the sense of Congress that Congress should enact, and the President should sign, legislation to strengthen the economy, recognize the heritage of the United States as a nation of immigrants, and amend the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq.) by–

(1) providing more effective border and employment enforcement;

(2) preventing illegal immigration; and

(3) reforming and rationalizing avenues for legal immigration.
