The author describes attempts to introduce laws in the United States which would control illegal immigration. He focuses on reforms that the Bush administration tried to introduce, and failed, and on the criteria that successful reforms under the Obama administration would have to meet. He demonstrates the complexity of the political situation and, in so doing, shows why it is that effective reform is unlikely. Copyright. Monash University and the author/s
