Hi readers – I’ve got a big stack of documents and memos and will flesh out my summary tomorrow as I can dive in to the details further. Hoping to continue updating from mid-morning onward.

What a truly historic day! There’s going to be a lot of work ahead, but people who have worked on these issues for years – decades in many cases – can know that they made major progress for people truly in need.

And America’s economy is going to benefit enormously as well. The skilled worker fixes have so far been underplayed, but will have a genuine impact on our long term economic growth. Add to that all of the new legally employed workers and we can see our deficit dropping and our economy speeding up.

A good day for immigrants. A better day for America.
