The Republicans are in charge of the House, and I presume they will block any meaningful immigration reform. But there should be some things that all Americans would support, such as working to keep families together. Some common sense immigration reform could lessen the impact of the 3 and 10 year bars, eliminate the 10 year unwaiveable bar, and return eligibility for humanitarian relief from deportation to a greater number of permanent residents.

Immigration overhaul: Republican senators signal a partisan showdown - latimes.com
The Repubs want to know how much it would cost to deport every alien that ICE comes in contact with. They are upset that ICE is now dismissing deportation cases against aliens with approveable green card applications.
I know what it will cost: a nation's soul.
That's right. The Republicans do not think we are tough enough on immigration.
