Dianne Feinstein has introduced a private bill that would allow Arthur Mkoyan and his family to stay in the United States indefinitely.
The bill will now have to pass through both the House of Representatives and the Senate.If the bill clears those hurdles, it will then move on to Senator Ted Kennedy’s sub-committee on immigration, where it will be investigated.In the meantime, the Mkoyan family will be allowed to remain in the U.S.
Private bills do not enjoy a high success rate. None have been passed since 2005. Deportation cases like that of Arthur Mkoyan can be prevented by passing the DREAM Act.
We would like to thank everyone for their support. Phe Facebook support group for Arthur Mkoyan is here*
