Teaching Module: U.S. Immigration Policy

Author: Edward Alden, Bernard L. Schwartz Senior Fellow
July 20, 2010

Featuring teaching notes by Edward Alden, director of this CFR-sponsored Independent Task Force on U.S. Immigration Policy, this teaching module includes additional resources to supplement the teaching of the text in the classroom.

It argues that maintaining America's political and economic leadership depends on attracting talented and hard-working immigrants and on securing the country's borders in a smart, effective, and humane way.
