House Moves Immigration Bills Forward

Legislation to reform immigration making slow progress.

Immigration legislation has been a sticking point in the House of Representatives for decades, and President Biden’s promise to make citizenship possible for a much wider range of people makes negotiation even more challenging. House majority members hope that this newest batch of bills would slowly move the process of immigration reform forward, offering aid to immigrants already in the U.S.

“They’re so much of our country,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California. “These immigrant communities strengthen, enrich and ennoble our nation, and they must be allowed to stay.” Many who oppose the legislation claim that the bill compromises American safety, but six of the minority party supported the passage of the bill on Thursday morning.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That the House members would be wise as they advocate for both current and future U.S. citizens.
  • For discernment for the Senate as they consider these immigration issues.
  • That God would work his purposes through the president’s administration.
