Immigration Reform & Asian Americans

Currently, DC is abuzz over the so-called “fiscal cliff”, which consists of a bunch of budget cuts that will be triggered if no budget deal is reached by year’s end.

Amidst all the budget talk, one important area of progress has nearly been forgotten:  the virtual certainty that Congress will pass comprehensive immigration reform.

Although immigration has been typecast as a “Latino” issue, Asian Americans would be profoundly affected by such landmark reform — because a change in the law might allow more Asian Americans not only to immigrate here, but also to enable Asian Americans who are undocumented (including children who moved here with their parents) to become American citizens.
