Governor's Task Force on Immigration: Final Report.
Texas Governor Mark White established a 28-member Governor's Task Force on Immigration on March 24, 1983 to: (1) examine the impact on Texas and its citizens of the legislative issues in the proposed federal Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1983; (2) hold public hearings to gain input from citizens, business, industry, labor, ranching and farming; (3) develop a Texas position on the legislation; and (4) develop strategies for affecting the national legislation. In this final report of the task force, separate sections address each major component of the proposed legislation: employer sanctions, enforcement, legal immigration, temporary workers, legalization (amnesty), federal reimbursement, and asylum. Other sections offer suggestions regarding the United States-Mexico relationship and aspects of documentation not directly addressed in the bill. Each section includes a discussion of the issues, particularly as they affect Texas, a summary of testimony on the issue before the task force, and specific recommendations (with rationale for each) pertaining to the issue. The executive order establishing the task force is appended. (NEC)
