Architecture for Immigration Reform: Fitting the Pieces of Public Policy

|Views: 368|Likes:
Immigration remains one of this country's most difficult and politically-charged issues. It is also one of the most important. Immigration affects our national security, shapes the fabric of our society and impacts our economic future. Few topics are more consequential—and few have been more resistant to resolution.

As you read this report, you will find that in spite of the many dimensions of the issue and the disparate perspectives brought to the table by the panel members, a thoughtful, factbased approach did indeed bring consensus. We hope that the work of the panel and the ideas presented in this report will stimulate similarly civil, thoughtful, fact-based debate among the public at large and its representatives in government, such that this broader conversation might lead to a consensus for action.
