Twenty Five Years Later: Reflecting on the Immigration Act of 1990

Description: On November 29, 1990, President George H.W. Bush signed into law the Immigration Act of 1990. The law increased immigration levels by redesigning admissions categories and restructuring employment-based entry provisions for both permanent and temporary admissions, with the aim of increasing emphasis on the skills, education, and investment of these immigrants. The bill also revised the grounds of inadmissibility and deportation, expanded the definition of aggravated felony, and established administrative naturalization and Temporary Protected Status (TPS).

MPI has marked important anniversaries of major milestones in U.S. immigration history with convenings that feature key players and experts intimately familiar with how and why they happened and how their provisions have worked out over time. In October, we hosted a symposium to mark the 50th anniversary of the 1965 Immigration Act.

To mark the 25th anniversary of the 1990 Act, MPI will host a discussion examining the history of the legislation, how it was accomplished politically, and the stakeholders and issues that were critical to its passage. Panelists will recount the goals of the legislation, assess whether they have been met, examine the unintended consequences, and discuss the relevance and lessons of the Act for current immigration debates.

This symposium will feature key players and experts involved with how and why the Act happened and the impact of the Act over the past twenty-five years and into the future.

Remember the Center for Immigration Studies
#Giving Tuesday

If you followed Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, then you probably already know about Giving Tuesday -- the contrived attempt to counter the commercialization of the Christmas season by supporting charitable organizations on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Giving Tuesday was created by the United Nations Foundation, which probably has very different views on immigration than the folks here at CIS.

But their request to support charitable causes provides you with an opportunity to support the Center and, in doing so, support an immigration policy more in line with the national interest: one that would reduce the overall levels and increase enforcement.

By donating to CIS, you are investing in reputable research that is used with authority by lawmakers to counter the steady erosion of federal immigration law that began many years ago. You are helping protect the rule of law, the sovereignty of the United States, and the security of your community. Please use this hashtag gimmick as a reminder to support our important work, and in doing so give back to those around you.
