The Migration Policy Institute has highlighted the top ten migration issues in 2012. Among them are the Obama Administration's issuance of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which provides a two-year reprieve from deportation for eligible unauthorized immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children. Also included are the surge of unaccompanied minors to the U.S. in 2012 and the results of the 2012 election and polls indicating that the majority of voters support giving most unauthorized immigrants a chance to apply for legal status, which could help put substantive immigration reform on the agenda for 2013.
