Description

Brookings Mountain West presents "Immigrant Workers, Human Capital Investment and the Shape of Immigration Reform" a talk by Audrey Singer, senior fellow, Metropolitan Policy Program.

President Obama's speech in Las Vegas last month kicked off Congressional debates on immigration policy.  While border security and illegal immigration are still high profile and thorny issues, slow economic growth following the Great Recession has helped to shift the focus to how the United States can change policy to better suit economic needs.  Where do immigrants fit into the labor force, how can they fit better, and what is the likely shape of future policy changes?
