Simpson Mazzoli Act

The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), also Simpson-Mazzoli Act (Pub.L. 99-603, 100 Stat. 3359, signed by President Ronald Reagan on November 6, 1986) is an Act of Congress which reformed United States immigration law. The Act made it illegal to knowingly hire or recruit illegal immigrants (immigrants who do not possess lawful work authorization), required employers to attest to their employees’ immigration status, and granted amnesty to certain illegal immigrants who entered the United States before January 1, 1982 and had resided there continuously. The Act also granted amnesty to several million illegal aliens, and its proponents promised the American public that that would be the last amnesty granted.

  1. I know a lot of people who weren’t even in this country when these Acts passed in ’86. They read about it, came here, dummied up an employment and residency record and became citizens. Then they brought their whole extended families over on their coat tails and charged them plenty. Got rich by their lights.

    What a joke.

    Every illegal immigrant in America today and plenty of people not even here yet, know the same thing will happen again.

    It’s a big joke. On all of us. On them too because soon we’re all gonna be living in mud huts and boiling up twig soup, just like they used to be doing in Wetbackastan.
