American Dreamers: Immigration and the Future of Opportunity

Immigrants play an important role in the economy as consumers, taxpayers, workers, and business owners. Yet from the courts to Congress, the political system remains deadlocked and polarized over the complex issues surrounding both the millions of undocumented immigrants already here and the future flows of legal immigration into the country. With immigration already looming as a central point of debate in the 2016 presidential election, we explore the implications of immigration reform for the economy, the workforce, the political process, and the American dream.
