Immigration Pause

April 1996
National Review;4/22/1996, Vol. 48 Issue 7, p14
The article addresses the conflict between the public and policymakers in the U.S. over legal immigration reform. Indifference was demonstrated by both the House of Representatives and the Senate Judiciary Committee by rejecting the legal-immigration reform proposals. The Committee approved an amendment eliminating reductions in legal immigration from the bill introduced by Representative Lamar Smith. Senator Spencer Abraham protests that he is a reformer and did propose measures to speed up the deportation of criminal aliens. To defeat reform, ethnic lobbyists joined forces with a conservative minority made up of big-business supporters and libertarian immigrationists. However, the coalition was not large enough to rout legal reform.
