They Myth that Immigration Reform Can't Pass in an Election Year

Rate this Entry
My friend Phil Wolgin at the Center for American Progress has published a nice piece listing five important immigration bills that passed in election years. The conventional wisdom has been that Congress won't take on tough issues in election years, but that's not really true. First on the list is IRCA, the 1986 immigration law that delivered the last legalization program. The 1990 Immigration Act overhauled legal immigration. IIRAIRA in 1996 may not have been the greatest for immigrants, but it was a tough vote certainly for many Democrats. The LIFE Act in 2000 extended 245i and various family unity measures. And the DREAM Act passed the House in 2010 and got a majority of votes in the Senate (failing, however, in a filibuster).
