On July 7th, the senate passed immigration reform legislation with an overwhelming majority. Meanwhile, the republican-led house has verbally panned the bill as “flawed legislation,” leaving little hope for a passage into law.

Demetrios Papademetriou is president and co-founder of the Migration Policy Institute.
