It has been nearly 33 years since passage of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA), which led to the nation’s last large-scale legalization program. How did IRCA come to pass? What are its lessons for the current immigration debate? What is the legacy for US immigration politics and for the migrant families and communities it benefited?

Please join the Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) for a timely and provocative conversation with Charles Kamasaki, Senior Cabinet Advisor for UnidosUS, who will discuss his groundbreaking new book on IRCA, entitled Immigration Reform: The Corpse That Will Not Die. Panelists will include:

Donald Kerwin
Executive Director, Center for Migration Studies

Charles Kamasaki

Most Reverend Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio

Bishop of Brooklyn

Bitta Mostofi
