Pathways to Reform: A Discussion on Immigration Policy

Thursday, May 22, 2014 8:00 AM - 10:30 AM

The Liaison Capitol Hill Hotel | 415 New Jersey Ave., NW | Washington, DC 20001

(Kristoffer Tripplaar)

With more than 11 million immigrants living in the United States illegally, immigration reform is a perennial issue in Washington. At the center of the debate: if, and how, immigration reform should be enacted.

Some supporters say that a swift, broad and comprehensive overhaul of the nation's immigration laws is desperately needed. Other proponents advocate for a piecemeal approach to immigration reform, and say that its interlocking pieces should be carefully considered before reaching the President's desk. Critics of reform lack confidence in Washington's ability to legislate the complicated aspects of immigration and assert that it will exacerbate a difficult job market— especially for American workers at the lower end of the salary spectrum.

Join National Journal for a policy summit on the future of immigration reform. This event will feature insights from government officials, economists, business leaders and immigration experts who will discuss questions such as: should Capitol Hill pass an immigration bill this year? Is a comprehensive overhaul necessary to fix the country's immigration laws, or is a piece-by-piece approach more prudent? And what are the implications of this debate?
