It looks as though congress will again attempt legislation on Comprehensive Immigration Reform, this time through the STRIVE Act of 2007. 

From the Washington Post 

A bipartisan proposal for comprehensive immigration reform that would allow millions of illegal immigrants to participate in a guest-worker program and possibly gain citizenship was introduced in the House yesterday, the first to be submitted since Democrats took control of Congress this year.

The Strive Act of 2007 is not yet available in the Library of Congress and the only information I could find on it were from the proponents of the bill.  Here is some of what they are saying;

From Representative Jeff Flake

The bill, the STRIVE Act of 2007 (Security Through Regularized Immigration and a Vibrant Economy), would overhaul the current immigration system in a way that better protects and enforces our borders, respects the hard work and contributions of immigrants to our country and reflects the realities of our workforce and the needs of our communities.

If enacted, the Gutierrez-Flake bill would ensure that we have an immigration system in place that meets the security and economic needs of our nation by creating laws that are tough, enforceable and realistic. 

When the text of the bill is made available I will certainly take a more in depth look at it,  but since the phrase “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” has become synonymous with a shamnesty program my expectations are rather low.
