Former U.S. Rep. Ron Mazzoli (D-KY), co-author of the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act, accepts a Leadership in Public Policy Award from the Migration Policy Institute (MPI), a non-partisan, independent think tank in Washington that studies international migration. On the occasion of its 10th Anniversary celebration on April 19, 2012, MPI honored Rep. Mazzoli and fellow IRCA co-author, former U.S. Sen. Alan Simpson (R-WY), for their leadership and bipartisanship in working to enact a major immigration reform measure with the interests of the country squarely in mind. Their work serves as reminder of a time when Congress was able to set aside its divisions to accomplish big things in the immigration arena. In this video, Rep. Mazzoli discusses his observations from the IRCA experience with MPI Senior Fellow Doris Meissner, who directs MPI’s U.S. Immigration Policy program.
