Immigration bill 2013, first pageApril 25, 2013

By John Seiler

You’re probably not going to read all 844 pages of the new immigration bill being drafted by the Gang of 8 in Congress. Neither will your congressman or senator read all of it before voting on it.

It’s officially called the “Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act.” Here’s the .pdf.

So I’ve located the key parts for you to understand what would happen if the bill is enacted. These are actual parts of the bill:

Page 65:

18 authority under clause (i) may not be used
19 to waive—
20 ‘‘(I) subparagraph (B), (C),
21 (D)(ii), (E), (G), (H), or (I) of section
22 212(a)(2);
23 ‘‘(II) section 212(a)(3);
24 ‘‘(III) subparagraph (A), (C),
25 (D), or (E) of section 212(a)(10); or 66
