844-page Gang of 8 CIR bill released

The full text of the immigration reform bill from the so-called “Gang of 8,” a bipartisan cluster of U.S. senators, has been released. You can read the full 844-page text here: http://dyn.politico.com/printstory.cfm?uuid=EC14BD2A-B1A3-33E6-C34D5DBBE17CAA06

In the coming days we will post summaries and updates from observers across the country as well as our own analysis as needed.

Amid all the excitement around this announcement it is important to keep in mind that this is only the first step on a long journey toward reforming U.S. immigration laws. All sides — business, labor, immigrant advocates, and those who favor reduced immigration — will weigh in and push the bill in different directions.
