Members of the U.S. House of Representatives Discuss the Simpson-Mazzoli Immigration Act Ca. 1984
Part 3Unknown - 1984
The Immigration Reform and Control Act, known as Simpson-Mazzoli, was first introduced to Congress in 1982. It called for immediate amnesty for illegal immigrants already in the country, followed by tougher regulations for citizenship and stricter enforcement of immigration laws. It was the first comprehensive immigration bill introduced to Congress in 32 years, and became one of the most controversial topics of the mid-1980s. The bill was debated, revised, and reintroduced in Congress for several years until it passed in 1986.
