3/2: Civil Liberties Update from National Immigration Forum

Chairman Specter's Mark on Immigration Misses the Mark

Last week, Chairman Specter released a draft of his 'Mark' on immigration reform. This 300 page-plus bill serves as the starting point for the Senate Judiciary Committee's debate on immigration reform. The bill combines elements of existing Senate immigration reform bills, including McCain/Kennedy, Cornyn/Kyl, and the Hagel immigration bills, as well as troubling provisions from the House-passed Sensenbrenner-King bill (H.R. 4437). Below is a sampling of materials on due process-related concerns with Chairman Specter's Mark and some broader summaries.

Sensenbrenner-King Bill Erodes Due Process

The Border Protection, Antiterrorism, and Illegal Immigration Control Act (H.R. 4437) passed the House of Representatives on December 16, 2005. The bill is harmful to both legal and undocumented immigrants. Below are links to some updated materials:
