Excerpt from Final Report of the Select Commission on Immigration and Refugee Policy: Joint Hearings Before the Subcommittee on Immigration and Refugee Policy of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary and Subcommittee on Immigration, Refugees and International Law of the House Committee on the Judiciary, Ninety-Seventh Congress

Senator simpson. This is a joint Congressional hearing. I think you'll find that such a procedure is nearly unprecedented. I under stand the last such hearing was some 30 years ago, and then both Houses Of Congress were controlled by my good colleagues on the other side of the aisle. Such is not the case at present.

Chairman Mazzoli and I trust that the fact that we are able to work together so closely on this issue despite our differing party affiliations, will indeed clearly demonstrate the absolute necessity for a bipartisan revision of our Nation's immigration and refugee policy. N ow each legislative body is fully aware of that.

We also believe that the joint hearing process and the close consultations between the two Houses will lead us to the develop ment and enactment of legislative reforms which are so critically needed in this country.

These initial hearings are rather singly intended to obtain public response to the final report of the Select Commission on Immigra tion and Refugee Policy. We hope by that procedure to learn more of the nature of immigration and refugee policies, and also to assess the political reality and environment in which the coming debate will be conducted.

Our goal, of course, is to develop policies and specific legislative proposals which will both satisfy the needs and interests of the American people and have a strong basis on those ideas which can be successfully enacted into law. Shakespeare would have said.
