Program 5

In this program, we consider the battle lines in the struggle to define “immigration reform” and address the major questions now facing the federal government.

  • How would a new immigration law best serve our “national interest”?
  • Is there any way immigration pressures on the U.S. and other developed countries can be relieved while the world’s population keeps growing rapidly?
