BREAKING DOWN THE PROBLEMS:

What's Wrong with our Current Immigration System?

October 21, 2009

D.C. - Today, the Immigration Policy Center released a new report,Breaking Down the Problems: What's Wrong With our Immigration System. This special report looks at the impact our outdated and inefficient immigration system is having on our nation and discusses the failures of the system under two broad categories: structural failure and inadequate responses

"We are embarking on a new round of immigration reform debates and to accomplish genuine reform, we must understand that immigration is about more than the 11-12 million people living without status in our country" said Mary Giovagnoli, Director of the Immigration Policy Center. "That group is a symptom of our failure to create an immigration system that works for the needs of America. It is time to shift the terms of the debate. We need to begin a discussion about what living without a functional immigration system has done to our nation over the last 20 years. We need to begin to ask the question: how is it in all our interests to reform immigration?"
 
The Immigration Policy Center's latest publication, Breaking Down the Problems, will be followed by a series of solution-oriented papers in the coming weeks.
