Lessons from Liberalism: Insights for the Current Immigration Debate

Welcome to the Bridge Policy Download produced by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.

Today, we’re bringing you the audio from a recent webinar we co-hosted with the Classical Liberal Institute on the current immigration debate.

The panel shares insight from their recent books and working papers on the topic and then go on to discuss the benefits of immigration, reform options for our current Congress, how and why reform efforts should be informed by policy research, and much more.
