A Conversation on Immigration with George Borjas

George J. Borjas, one of the world’s leading scholars of immigration, discusses the winners and losers from immigration, the effects of immigrant workers on native-born workers, the holistic effects of immigration on the welfare state and public services, the H-1B program, Senator Sessions’s nomination as attorney general, the moral dimension of immigration policy, and more.

While you’re at it, don’t miss Dr. Borjas’s short essay on Castro’s death, “Vignettes From A Communist Utopia” — “I will always remember being lined up with my family against the wall with soldiers pointing machine guns at us while other soldiers searched” — or his chapter on immigration in my recently published edited volume.
