On June 27, 2013, the Senate passed a comprehensive immigration reform bill with strong bipartisan support: The Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013 (S.744). In the House, leadership has outlined principles for reform and considered several piecemeal bills in relevant committees.

The purpose of this brief is to highlight key issues for people with disabilities and older adults and analyze the extent to which these issues have been addressed in the current immigration reform debate.
