Morrison, Bruce A.
BRUCE A. Morrison is chairman of the Morrison Public Affairs Group (MPAG), which he founded in 2001 to conduct and supervise a broad practice involving strategic advice and representation for both domestic and international clients. He is also an attorney and provides legal advice and assistance in immigration matters.
From 1983 to 1991, Morrison represented the Third District of Connecticut (New Haven) in the House of Representatives. As chairman of the Immigration Subcommittee, he led the passage of the Immigration Act of 1990, a comprehensive reform, which included expanded admission of skilled workers. This legislation created the "Morrison visa" program under which almost 50,000 Irish men and women received green cards in the early 1990s.
Since 1991, Morrison has traveled frequently to Northern Ireland and has been involved in many aspects of the peace process. In 1992, he advised Bill Clinton, while a presidential candidate, on issues related to Northern Ireland. He continued to provide advice and information to the Clinton White House from 1993 to 2001, including assistance on negotiations leading to IRA cessations in 1994 and 1997. In 1992 and 1996, he was co-chairman of Irish Americans for Clinton Gore.
Morrison holds a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from MIT and a master’s degree in organic chemistry from the University of Illinois. He is a graduate of Yale Law School.
