Legal Immigration Reform: Challenges and Promising Paths Forward

This event has passed.

The last substantial reform to the legal immigration system was passed in 1990—today, majorities of both parties view the current system as broken. The recent bipartisan reintroduction of the Dignity Act is a welcome attempt to spur bipartisan comprehensive reform at a time when the failures of our legal immigration system are becoming more and more apparent. Building on this momentum is critical to creating opportunities for real legislative change.

Join us for a panel discussion on legal immigration reform and all the issues raised by its current status quo: a byzantine system that is almost impossible to navigate, pandemic-driven visa backlogs, decades-long waits for both family-sponsored and employment-based green cards, and the consequent impacts on families and businesses. Panelists will also explore and share their best ideas for reforming this system.
