Foundations Of Immigration Reform

by Edward Paul Lazearvia PolicyEd
Wednesday, March 13, 2019

America’s immigration system needs to be reformed in order to handle modern challenges of immigration. Long lines to get in exist alongside millions of undocumented immigrants already in the country.

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Wednesday, March 13, 2019

My fellow immigrant from Canada, David Frum, has a long article in The Atlantic in which he argues for cutting legal immigration in half. The whole piece, titled “If Liberals Won’t Enforce Borders, Fascists Will,” is worth reading, partly because he makes a serious case for reducing immigration and partly because, along the way, he presents a number of facts about immigration that both critics and advocates of more immigration should be aware of.
