MPI's President, Demetrios G. Papademetriou, and the Editor-in-Chief of The American Prospect, Kit Rachlis, engage in a lively Google Hangout discussion about the policies and politics that have created the United States' antiquated, inflexible immigration system and how to create a modern-day, flexible immigration system suited for the competitiveness of the 21st century. They discuss recommendations for reform, with a focus on issues that are getting less attention, including: the need for completion of a U.S. entry-exit system, what provisions are needed to assure the economic and social integration of newcomers and their children, and what flexible provisions should be included to guarantee the nation's strategic priorities.
