Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus
The Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus is a political organization made up of members of the United States Congress.
According to the agenda posted on the founder's congressional website, and repeated in subsequent caucus declarations, the caucus was founded "to review current immigration policy, propose new immigration policies and provide a forum in Congress for addressing the positive and negative consequences of our immigration policies."

Caucus members during the 110th US Congress included Congressmen Ted Poe (R-TX), Lamar Smith (R-TX), Phil Gingrey (R-GA), Bill Sali (R-ID) and Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD).
