A Discussion on Immigration Reform

  • April 17, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Immigration reform is being debated and discussed in Congress and by the President.  Many pundits claim that Republicans must address immigration reform or else risk being a minority party.

As with our last discussion, we will debate many different issues, including:

- Do we even need immigration reform?
- What should immigration reform look like?  For example, should it include more enforcement measures, a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants, and/or more opportunities for foreigners to legally enter the country?
- Is there a fair way to have a pathway to citizenship that respects the rule of law?
- Are there less ambitious plans other than a broad-based pathway program that would be better, such as giving children of illegal immigrants a chance to receive in-state tuition (Dream Act)?
- Is enforcement even possible?
- Why should we expect different results this time compared to the failed Reagan-era amnesty program?
- Should we take a completely new view on immigration and look towards an open border policy?
- What are the political implications of immigration reform?

As we get closer to the event, supplemental material will be sent to registrants.  Please read over this material and think through questions and comments you have for the group.

See you soon!
