The United States, historically defined as a land of immigrants, faces an ongoing debate about the effectiveness and morality of its migration procedures. Recent media coverage of harsh conditions at detention centers along the southern border and debates gearing up for the 2020 presidential election have drawn public scrutiny of issues of migration. Calling attention to potential violations of the UN Declaration of Human Rights, this paper emphasizes the urgency of addressing migration policy in the United States. Through comparing candidates for the 2020 election and their policy programs, this paper reviews the current state of migration policy in the United States, alternatives, and the likelihood of their adoption.
Read a new policy paper reviewing the current state of migration policy in the United States and elaborating on alternatives to it based on policy programs of candidates for the 2020 presidential elections.
