On February 24, 2023, Cornell Law School sponsored “Immigration Reform: Lessons Learned and A Path Forward,” a conference held at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. Both in-person and over Zoom, about 220 people attended the conference, which explored targeted legislation and other policy changes that could be enacted in 2023. Panels focused on three topics: work visa changes to help alleviate high-skilled and low skilled-labor shortages, border security and asylum reforms, and a permanent path forward for Dreamers, farmworkers, and others. “Major reforms require the convergence of a widely recognized problem, policy solutions, and sufficient political will, ” said Miller Mayer immigration attorney Steve Yale-Loehr, conference co-organizer and moderator. “Our conference brought together expert scholars, analysts, and advocates to probe ways to clarify key problems, identify achievable policies, and build the political will needed to enact them. We hope to build on the conference discussions to develop constructive proposals that have a realistic chance of enactment this year.” Read more about the conference here.
