In this article, the authors observe that immigration reform legislation may well be revived in the U.S. Congress in 2006. The authors discuss some factors that would contribute to its revival. An effort of Republican and Democrat lawmakers to meet behind the scenes to revive the legislation is cited. The authors also assert that some GOP legislators are nervous that they could pay a political price if Congress fails to pass a bill before the November 2006 elections.
