Congress has failed to address our broken immigration system over the past decade, so administrative policies and state laws have filled the gap—usually not to the benefit of employers. The presenters discuss the effects of the 2012 elections:

  • Will comprehensive legislation finally pass?
  • Will policymaking continue through federal and state regulatory and paperwork changes?
  • Whose voices will prevail—those of employers, restrictionists, unions or pro-immigration groups?
