The New York Times recently ran an article by Richard Stevenson titled: Economic Nudge for an Immigration Overhaul.

The author states that ” several underlying factors contributing to illegal immigration have changed since Congress last considered a bill on the issue in 2007″.  These changes will help make comprehensive immigration reform more likely.

It appears that economic opportunities in Mexico are giving incentives to Mexican workers to stay in Mexico. “The Mexican economy, while still riddled with inefficiency and inequality, is nonetheless humming along, providing many more job opportunities for Mexican workers.”  The article also cites a shrinking birthrate in Mexico (the source of 6 out of 10 illegal immigrants in the United States).

The article states : “…for now  the population of illegal immigrants in the United States shows little sign of growth.  It fell to 11.1 million in 2011, the most recent year for which figures are available, from a peak of 12 million in 2007, the Pew Hispanic Center said in a report on Tuesday.  By one new estimate, the number of people who manages to cross the Mecican border illegally into the United States fell to 85,000 in 2011, down from 600,000 five years earlier.”

“With the scale of the problem stabilizing for the moment, or even shrinking, some experts say, there is more room for political compromise than the last time around.” (emphasis mine).

“Even though the economic and demographic changes have remained largely in the backgound of the debate, analysts say they could offer more reassurance to conservatives in particular that giving legal status to those immigrants would not simply produce another wave of them”.  Thus, again it is more likely that there will be comprehensive immigration reform.

It appears, from many different sources, that there will be reforms in immigration law over the next several months (there has already been some reforms which may apply to you). These laws will affect anyone who lives in the U.S. illegally or has loved ones who live in the U.S. illegally. If this is your situation then you should contact an experienced immigration attorney now to help you go over your options.

This article is intended to provide you with information about current immigration affairs. You should speak to a competent attorney about your particular case. Please do not listen to friends or co-workers concerning your immigration issues. Rather, please consult with a competent immigration attorney.
