Statement on Immigration Bill Introduced by Senator Menendez
Yesterday Senator Menendez (D-NJ) introduced legislation (S. 3932) as part of a three-stage plan unveiled two weeks ago by members of Congress to support immigration reform. Senator Menendez is a vocal champion of immigrant issues in Congress. At NAKASEC, we support Senator Menendez’ bill, which is a comprehensive attempt to solve our nation’s immigration system. Once introduced, the bill would have to be considered by the Senate Judiciary Committee. Below is a summary of the bill contents.

NAKASEC also has affiliates in Los Angeles (The Korean Resource Center) and in Chicago (The Korean American Resource & Cultural Center). KRC and KRCC are founding affiliates of NAKASEC.
