On Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives plans to vote on two immigration bills. One bill would give DACA recipients and other immigrants with legal status a pathway to citizenship, and the other would allow farmworkers in the country illegally to apply for legal work authorization. The following Cornell University experts are available to discuss the legislation.

Shannon Gleeson, professor of labor relations, law and history, studies how DACA policy is implemented and the impacts of Temporary Protected Status on immigrant workers.

Jaclyn Kelley-Widmer, professor of immigration law and director of Cornell’s Immigration Law and Advocacy Clinic, is an expert on asylum law and the DACA program.

Matthew Hall, professor of policy analysis and management and director of the Cornell Population Center, conducts research on immigration enforcement as well as the intersection of racial/ethnic inequality and immigration, including for the DACA program.

Richard Stup, agricultural workforce specialist, serves as liaison between the agricultural industry and employment-focused regulatory authorities. He comments that passing the Farm Workforce Modernization Act would be a major step in stabilizing the agricultural workforce.
