The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986

The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA) is one of the many laws that serves to amend and adapt US immigration law. Enacted in 1986, it has a number of provisions, concerned primarily with illegal immigration reform.

Understanding IRCA

The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 had several major points. They are:

  • Employers are required to attest to the immigration status of their employees, building in an additional layer of employer responsibility.
  • It is illegal for employers to knowingly hire illegal immigrants.
  • Amnesty was granted to illegal immigrants who met certain criteria, specifically those who had entered the country prior to January 1, 1982 and had lived in the United States continuously since then.
  • Certain legalization options were made available to seasonal and migrant agricultural workers who had been in the US illegally since January 1, 1982 and had resided there continuously.

Unsurprisingly, the major effects of the IRCA today are due to its ban on knowingly hired illegal-immigrant employees.
