Senate to decide new amendments to the S.744 bill

On Thursday, May 8th, the Senate will begin to decide on the hundreds of proposed amendments for the new immigration bill, a number of them influencing refugee and asylum cases.

Many of the proposed amendments would change the requirements of undocumented immigrants on their pathway to citizenship, some have requested evidence of DNA tests for legal status while some request income requirements. An amendment from Senator Sessions wants immigrants to “prove they have an average annual income four times higher than the federal poverty line, which for a family of four, is more than $94,000.”

You can refer to a further list of these amendments from each Senator at this link from the Senate.
