    This is a summary of what the Senate's proposal looks like. The actual legislation that they have drafted is over 1500 pages. This is the summary that the Senate released to the press and that the American Immigration Lawyers Association has shared. There will be several hearings and markups throughout April and May. Nothing is final until the President signs it into law- that could take many months.
