Abstract

Americans are dissatisfied with their immigration system and are seeking changes. However, additional demands and expectations will be placed on those organizations that have to enforce and implement these changes. How will comprehensive immigration reform affect federal agencies? Determining the specific implementation demands likely to result from comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) legislation without knowing the specific policy elements that will be enacted is a difficult task. Nevertheless, this report presents a broad overview of the probable effects of likely policy changes by presenting an authoritative analysis utilizing a comprehensive literature review, a detailed investigation of relevant case studies, secondary analysis of public opinion polls, and in-depth interviews with eleven-stakeholder groups.
