Filipino children who are in the United States illegally may now have a chance to pursue higher studies in the country and eventually become citizens.

At the same time, Filipinos in the country who have petitioned family members from the Philippines may not have to wait several decades for the petition to be approved.

These are the salient points of the comprehensive immigration reform bill that will be a top priority in the US Senate before the end of the year, Nevada Sen. Harry Reid said.

"Filipinos should be very interested in this. Immigration reform is going to be in the top five of our agenda," he told Asian Journal.

While not admitting that the comprehensive immigration bill includes an amnesty, Sen. Reid indicated that individuals who are in the US illegally will not be apprehended.
