Panel on Immigration Reform


Latino voters were decisive in the last election, giving renewed momentum for immigration reform in the next Congress. What would be the likely dimensions of immigration reform legislation? Where might the two parties compromise in order to move reform forward? What are the implications for the U.S. economy and labor market? Join Americas Society/Council of the Americas and the New York Immigration Coalition for a discussion on these issues and more.
