Sound Immigration Policy
Crossing Borders: From Myth to Sound Immigration Policy - Brookings Institution

Debates on immigration reform have often snagged on public misperceptions about foreign-born residents within U.S. borders. Now, with Congress and the administration once again focused on reform, a wide range of myths about the costs and benefits to the United States of employing noncitizens, from lower-wage to highly skilled workers, threatens to derail productive action.

On September 28, The Hamilton Project will host a forum focused on the economics of immigration. A panel of economic experts will help distinguish economic reality from myth in the current debate -- with particular regard to the impact of immigration on the wages of middle-class and lower-income workers; the living standards of Americans; and the demand for, and availability of, visas for highly skilled workers.
