The Hoover Institution’s Conte Initiative on Immigration Reform is the result of numerous conferences, meetings, and conversations during the past year among academics, politicians, and Hoover fellows who are concerned with the structure and outcomes of America’s immigration system. Chaired by Hoover senior fellow Edward Lazear, the initiative examines legal and illegal immigration. The guiding principle is to identify clear improvements to what most agree is an unfair and inefficient immigration system.

The “Immigration Reform” channel on Hoover’s Advancing a Free Society blog is an online space that will provide facts and analysis, with the goal of informing the debate on immigration reform as it unfolds across public and legislative spaces. By providing unbiased information to decision makers and other interested parties and by stripping away obfuscation, the Conte Initiative hopes to assist in the creation of an appropriate immigration system for the United States.
