Pointless: On the Failure to Adopt an Immigration Points System in the United States
When bipartisan efforts to adopt comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) legislation collapsed in the U.S. Congress in June 2007, proposals for a merit-based “points system” to select prospective immigrants died with it. We explain why comprehensive reform did not pass and show that points system proposals did not enhance prospects for reform.
