The Issue of Immigration in America: Moving Beyond Walls and Open Borders


In the United States, the issue of immigration gives rise to controversy and conflict. This issue requires us to wrestle with challenging questions about many things, including:

  1. Who should be admitted to the US as an immigrant (family members, skilled workers, etc.)?
  2. How many people should the US admit as immigrants (should we increase, decrease or keep current levels)?
  3. What rules should guide the immigration process (and how should these rules be enforced)?
  4. How should we address the problems (social, political, and economic) that cause people to migrate from their home countries?
