"After a review of the political scenario and the stagnation of the immigration debate in both houses of Congress in the last two decades, a group of academics from Cornell University, New York, urged the legislature to urgently debate bipartisan proposals and find solutions to serious problems, such as the historic backlog of cases in the immigration courts and the immigration service. ... In a document published Thursday, the Cornell University Law School think tank indicated that, after evaluating the political landscape, “we estimate that the proposed reforms should (and could) be implemented” as long as there is political will in both houses of Congress.  “We designed our proposals to address three areas where we see public support and support from a bipartisan Congress. Even in a gridlocked Congress, these targeted immigration reforms can be implemented,” said Stephen Yale-Loehr, professor of Immigration Practice and director of the Immigration Law and Policy Program at Cornell Law School."
