Rural Migration News: Immigration Reform, Unauthorized
There are few prospects for major immigration reforms in 2023-24. The Republican-controlled House announced plans to focus on unauthorized migration over the Mexico-US border and to impeach DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for not enforcing US immigration laws that aim to prevent unauthorized migration.
Restrictionist House Republicans introduced a bill in January 2023 that would empower DHS to bar unauthorized foreigners from the US if DHS is unable to process them via normal procedures. Admissionist Senate Democrats introduced bills to allow the 600,000 unauthorized foreigners who arrived in the US before the age of 16 and graduated from US high schools, and who are currently protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program launched in June 2012, to become immigrants and eventually US citizens. Bipartisan bills to legalize unauthorized farm workers and make it easier to employ H-2A guest workers are unlikely to be enacted in 2023-24.
