June 27th 2013 – Ridgewood, NJ – The Nachman Phulwani Zimovcak (NPZ) Law Group, P.C. applauds the U.S. Senate for passing comprehensive immigration reform legislation (S. 744) by a vote of 68-32 (including 14 Republicans). The vote reflects how far the country has come in understanding the significance of immigration reform to the health and well-being of the nation as a whole.
Regardless of what may come next, today’s vote reflects the fact that the social and economic benefits of immigration reform are tangible and achievable. There will be much work ahead to continue to perfect the policies reflected in this bill. But for the moment, we thank the Senate, led by the Gang of Eight (especially our State Senator Robert Menendez), for the courage and vision to finally move the country forward on immigration.
The vote, while expects, is a game-changer. The debate around immigration reform is forever changed, the notion that the Senate cannot act on immigration is a thing of the past. The vote offers the country a chance to start again on immigration.
While the compromises necessary to achieve a significant bipartisan vote were many, this is a lesson for us all in democracy-we can respect deep disagreements on policy grounds, yet still find a way forward.
