This article focuses on the reaction of Caribbean immigrant advocate Irwine Clare to the news yesterday that a comprehensive bipartisan immigration bill, that calls for earned legalization for undocumented immigrants living here, was introduced in both the U.S. House and Senate. The bill, the Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act, introduced and authored by Senators John McCain and Edward M. Kennedy and Representatives Jeff Flake, Luis Gutierrez, and Jim Kolbe, covers the gamut, from border security to reduction of the backlogs and family re-unification; earned legalization; and fraud protection. For the undocumented, the bill recommends H-5B visas, valid for six years, but requires that applicants show work history, clean criminal record, prove that they are not a security problem to be eligible for a temporary visa, pay substantial fines and application fees as well as back taxes and meet English/civics requirements.
