In 1978 the U.S. Congress created the Select Commission on Immigration and Refugee Policy (SCIRP) to review the country's immigration policy and to recommend actions that should be taken by the government regarding immigration. After two years of study, the commission recommended more enforcement of immigration laws, amnesty for current undocumented aliens, and a reassessment of the refugee problem. This paper reviews SCIRP's findings and discusses several proposals presented by President Reagan in 1981.
