RNC Urges Passage of Immigration Reform

The Republican National Committee "passed a resolution Friday calling on Congress to pass an immigration reform bill by the end of the year--but it stopped well short of the bipartisan compromise passed by the Senate earlier this year, omitting a 'path to citizenship' for any class of illegal immigrant," Time reports.

"The resolution calls on Congress to create a special legal status for illegal immigrants brought to America as minors--or 'DREAMers,' as immigration activists call them, for the eponymous bill to provide them legal status--which would include a renewable five-year work permit. They would have to provide proof of employment or enrollment to retain the status."
