Immigration Reform

Congress is poised to take on the issue of immigration reform this spring with one comprehensive measure. Is a panel of experts needed to determine labor market needs and the future flow of legal immigrants? Will we see an increase in the number of visas for legal immigrants with technology and science skills? Will employers have to verify the legal status of new hires through an electronic database (E-Verify) and face greater enforcement and sanctions? Will it include a path to citizenship? Will low wage workers be protected from exploitation and abuse? To what extent will states continue to be free to legislate in this area? Without knowing what the final legislation will include, how do you advise your employer or union clients?  

Join us for a frank discussion of possibilities and options and how they will affect the workplace.

Ana Avendano, Esq., Assistant to President for Immigration and Community Action, AFL-CIO
