Stephen Legomsky, the John S. Lehmann University Professor Emeritus, testified at a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, and Border Safety, aimed to identify and remove barriers to legal migration.
“It has been 32 years since Congress last meaningfully updated our system of legal immigration. Since then, massive backlogs have accumulated. Millions of immigrants who qualify for admission – and the American family members and businesses who sponsor them – continue to wait for years,” he says. “It is with the goal of shortening the waiting periods for those whom Congress has made the decision to welcome to our shores that the recommendations in this testimony are respectfully offered.”
