Fish­man, 50, is an es­sen­tial fig­ure in the im­mig­ra­tion de­bate; he worked for the Im­mig­ra­tion Sub­com­mit­tee when re­forms were en­acted by Con­gress in 1996 and passed by the House in 2005. (He missed the ac­tion on Pres­id­ent Re­agan’s 1986 im­mig­ra­tion law be­cause he was get­ting his law de­gree.) Fish­man is one of only a hand­ful of staffers on the Hill who un­der­stands im­mig­ra­tion law thor­oughly and the polit­ic­al mazes it cre­ates, par­tic­u­larly for Re­pub­lic­ans. He also col­lects ob­scure 1960s rock re­cord­ings.
