H.R.717: Reuniting Families Act Bill (Family-Based Immigration Reform) Introduced in the House

Rep. Michael Honda of California with 61 co-sponsors introduced H.R.717, Reuniting Families Act bill to promote family unity. This bill appears to raise a voice for the family-based immigration community which has recently been assaulted by some interest groups and conservative political leaders. 

There is very low chance that this bill will pass the Congress as a piecemeal legislation under the given environment and should rather be taken as a strategy to solicit and consolidate the family-based immigration advocates so that the family unification political agenda does not suffer in the comprehensive immigration reform legislation process. 

Details of the bill is yet to be released but the press release of the sponsor gives a peak into the intent of this legislative bill.
