Legal Immigration Reforms for the 21st Century

Featuring David Bier, Daniel Griswold, Alex Nowrasteh, Stuart Anderson, & Heather Curry Kartch

Congress has not overhauled America’s legal immigration system in nearly three decades. While legal immigrants overwhelmingly benefit the United States, the system is unfair to those who go through it, and its arbitrary and outdated rules undermine the economic and social benefits that legal immigrants contribute to America. With Congress now in the midst of a wide-ranging debate over which reforms to adopt, innovative approaches will be critical to pushing reform across the finish line. Join us as our speakers draw on the best aspects of immigration systems around the world to present new ideas to improve America’s system for the 21st century and beyond.
