“Path to Citizenship” – Senate Plan proposes time periods

The Bipartisan “Gang of Eight” Senators working on Immigration Reform have proposed a “Path to Citizenship” for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in this nation. After qualifying, they would have to wait ten (10) years for a Green Card and another three (3) years to be eligible for citizenship. The overall time period of thirteen (13) years is the same as the President’s proposal, but President Obama’s proposal would have them wait eight (8) years for a Green Card and five (5) years for citizenship. In both situations, the undocumented immigrants would be required to pay penalties, file back taxes and learn English.
