Overview of Immigration Issues in the 112th Congress
Ruth Ellen Wasem (au)
The number of foreign-born people residing in the U.S. is at the highest level in U.S. history and has reached a proportion of the U.S. population äóî 12.5% äóî not seen since the early 20th century. Of the 38 million foreign-born residents in the U.S., approx. 16.4 million are naturalized citizens. The remaining 21.6 million foreign-born residents are noncitizens. According to the latest estimates by the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS), about 10.8 million of the 21.6 million noncitizens were unauthorized aliens living in the U.S. in Jan. 2010, down from a peak of 11.8 million in Jan. 2007. Some observers and policy experts maintain that the presence of millions of unauthorized residents is evidence of inadequacies in the legal immigration system as well as failures of immigration control policies and practices. This report synthesizes immigration issues as a multi-tiered debate. It breaks down the U.S. immigration law and policy into key elements: border control and visa security; legal immigration; documentation and verification; interior immigration enforcement; integration, status, and benefits; and refugees and other humanitarian populations. It delineates the debate in the 112th Congress for a range of issues, including border security, criminal aliens, worksite enforcement, employment eligibility verification, permanent admissions, temporary workers, legalization, noncitizen eligibility for federal benefits, birthright citizenship, and the role of state and local law enforcement in enforcing immigration laws. This is a print on demand report.
