"Looking Beyond Comprehensive Immigration Reform: A New Immigration Politics": Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (50+).< less
"Comprehensive Immigration reform" balancing increased legal immigration with extensive border and workplace enforcement, has been a goal shared by both Democratic and Republican presidents.
But Congress has been unable to pass such a bill for two decades. Instead, immigration advocates should champion reform that other countries have successfully implemented: based on state and regional economic needs, which can win support from state-level political coalitions. Such proposals would tie immigration to economic impact, eliminating a "shadow system of residency that currently exists outside the law."
Speaker Ann Chih Lin is Associate Professor of Public Policy in Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan. She received her BA in history from Princeton University and her PhD in political science from the University of Chicago.
