Beyond walls and tariffs: Responding to migration challenges at the US-Mexico border – AEI – American Enterprise Institute: Freedom, Opportunity, Enterprise5th July 2019
Illegal crossings at the US-Mexico border are at the highest level in more than a decade. President Trump has responded with increasingly dramatic steps, including threatening debilitating tariffs on Mexican exports and the elimination of aid to Central America. At the same time, heightened political polarization undermines the US government’s ability to adequately address the complex challenge of illegal immigration with practical policies and bipartisan legislation.
Join AEI and the Migration Policy Institute for a conversation on border security, as well as policy responses and regional cooperation on illegal immigration.
Join the conversation on social media with @AEI on Twitter and Facebook.
