Arrangement: Alphabetically by topic.
The bulk of the issue files on immigration focus on the 1984 legislation known as the
Immigration Control and Reform Act, H.R. 1510. This legislation is also referred to as the
Simpson/Mazzoli Bill since Senator Alan Simpson (R-Wyom.) and Congressman Romano
Mazzoli (D-Ky.) each sponsored complementary bills in their respective chambers on this issue.
Extensive amendments made this bill controversial and there is a plethora of correspondence in
the files from various organizations and members of Congress, as well as constituents, urging
Carper to vote one way or another. Carper did support immigration reform as proposed in H.R.
1510. Clippings and published reports related to the bill are included.
Files relating to migrant farm workers in Delaware complete this subseries.
