Immigration Strategy for the Borderless Economy

View Slide Presentation

Few issues have been more contentious in the United States, and for a longer time, than immigration. Comprehensive reform, however, appears to be getting close. On one hand, the nation's sizable Latino population is making its presence felt in the economy and the voting booth. Neither party can afford to enter the next election cycle without addressing immigration. On the other, foreigners fill crucial gaps in human capital. The corporate sector wants wider access to the high-skilled global workforce. Moreover, universities are training scientists and engineers who are forced to leave the country because of their immigration status. Our panel of leaders will discuss how policy must evolve to serve the country and the issue's many stakeholders. Is citizenship realistic for the millions of undocumented immigrants who have built lives here? How do we open doors to talent rather than encourage its exodus? Does immigration affect incomes?
