As of right now, expect “Baby Steps” with the House of Representatives regarding a new Immigration Bill.   The House plans on passing a bunch of smaller Immigration Bills that will address specific problems with immigration.

The House of Representatives first Immigration Bill will probably be a Border Security Bill.  The Senate may refuse to pass the House’s Border Security Bill claiming that they will only pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill.

This stalemate may force the issue of immigration reform to 2014 where the balance of power may have changed in to the House of Representatives and Senate.  Actual illegal aliens who want immigration reform as quickly as possible may have to plan on pressuring the Democratic Senate to pass the House Border Security Bill.  Otherwise, the House of Representatives, as of right now, seems content on waiting until 2014.
