Some good news — citizenship has staying power!

This just came in from the LA Times.  Really positive to see that there is real, hardheaded progress towards comprehensive immigration reform.  About a month ago, AILA had our monthly chapter meeting in Philadelphia.  Sen. Bob Casey came to give a short talk on what he was seeing on Capitol Hill, and after him a former Congressional Staffer, Richard Phillips gave us some advice on working with our representatives.  In his mind, the sequester was going nowhere and there would not be an agreement (he was right!), gun control was going nowhere (more and more looks like he’ll be right), but Comprehensive Immigration Reform was likely to actually happen.  The more stories I see like this, the more optimistic I feel: Senators Agree on Path to Legal Status for Illegal Immigrants.
