Immigration has remained at the center of the 2016 presidential election cycle. This month, both major parties will hold their national conventions, where immigration promises to remain a major issue only a few weeks after the Supreme Court’s deadlock that blocked President Obama’s executive action program. While any reform in Congress has taken a back seat to election-year politics in 2016, some lawmakers have already hinted at pushing for reform after the election.
BPC hosted a discussion on the immigration issues being addressed, the potential political and legislative impact of the Supreme Court outcome, and the path forward on reform.
