Washington, DC ñ This week, the Immigration Reform Caucus (IRC) sent a letter to Speaker Boehner calling for a commitment to regular order for the development of any legislation related to immigration reform.
ìIt is imperative that all of the committees of jurisdiction have the opportunity to analyze, debate, amend and ultimately improve the bill,î said IRC Chairman Poe. ìProceeding through regular order will result in stronger legislation. Immigration reform is too important to be crafted behind closed doors like Obamacare. The Affordable Care Act was written in the dark of night and pushed through both Chambers without proper review. Look how that turned out. The American people must know that the fate of immigration reform rest in the hands of those who they have elected to serve, not just an elite few.î
