Act (Proposed)

Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007, S. 1348 (proposed)

This proposed act would, among its many parts, allow illegal immigrants to live and work legally in the U.S. with a work authorization card, after paying a fine and other fees. It would also create a temporary worker program, in which workers would have to return home every two years, staying in their country of origin for one year between each work stint. A separate new program would be created for agricultural workers. The bill stalled after a Senate vote on June 7, 2007. On June 28, 2007, the bill "died' in the Senate after failing to get the 60 votes needed to end debate.
