America Waits to Hear How Senate Immigration Plan Will Address High-Skilled Workers and Diversity


The Senate's bipartisan 'Gang of Eight' immigration reform bill could be revealed as soon as Thursday as the nation awaits to see the details from the much anticipated proposal. The bill has been advertised to provide a pathway to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants while securing the border and creating the toughest enforcement laws in history. Many in the business community are anxious to see how the Senate's plan will address H1-B visas and high-skilled immigrants. At the same time, the NAACP is lobbying Congress to prevent the reduction in "diversity" visas that usually go to people from Africa and the Caribbean.

On 'Real News' Tuesday the panel was joined by Jose Mallea of The Libra Initiative to discuss the potential changes to high-skilled and diversity visas that are expected in the Senate's immigration reform plan.
