Guest Worker Visas Can Halt Illegal Immigration

The following was written by Alex Nowrasteh of the Cato Institute:

There is a trade off between the number of lower skilled guest worker visas and the number of unauthorized immigrants. More lower skilled guest workers means fewer unauthorized immigrants. Fewer guest workers mean more unauthorized immigrants. We just have to look back to the Bracero program to see this relationship.   Read more »

Don’t Settle For The Quick And Easy Answer on Immigration

Texas faces immigration problems that too many Republican voters view solely through the spectrum of catchy phrases and bumper sticker slogans when they think about solutions.
