Those Republicans in the House who have begun looking at immigration reform, have proceeded cautiously and slowly. Instead of bundling a host of smaller bills together in a comprehensive bill, the GOP is moving piece by piece from low-skilled worker visas to border security.

Bailey, who is coming all the way from Texas this week, argues that its time for the House to move just a little faster.

"I hope immigration gets a fair shot in the congressional calendar. Piecemeal is better than nothing at all. But I think addressing the broken immigration system that is hindering business and entrepreneurs across the country is a must," Bailey said.
