touchback
 n.— «On one side are those who believe that progressives should not support federal legislation that offers less than complete and unconditional amnesty for undocumented immigrants. This means no compromises around “guest worker” policies, no mandates that immigrants first return to their native countries before returning as legal US immigrants—a process known as “touchback”—, and no different rules for longtime vs. recently arrived immigrants.» —“Progressives Risk Bitter Split over Immigration Reform” by Randy Shaw BeyondChron (San Francisco, California) Apr. 30, 2007.
