Political Paralysis and Immigration Reform in the US

By all accounts, the United States has an outdated and ineffective national immigration policy. Both the massive societal changes since the most recent reforms and the poor enforcement of laws already in existence have led to a system that is wildly out of step with the country’s immigration needs.  Current challenges include long waiting lists for US entry, unmet demand for labor, and 11 million undocumented immigrants living on the margins of society. However, the longstanding and often acrimonious political stalemate over key issues has impeded large-scale reform.
