Event Details

Whether Congress should open the U.S. labor market to more foreign workers is one of the most challenging questions it faces in the debate over how to reform federal immigration laws. Nearly every other government and parliament around the world also grapples with the same key questions: how many workers should be admitted, and what rights should they have?

About the speakers: Dr. Martin Ruhs is an Associate Professor in Political Economy at Oxford University, Senior Researcher at the ESRC Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS), and a member of the U.K. Migration Advisory Committee. He will be joined by Dr. Lindsay Lowell, the Director of Policy Studies for the Institute for the Study of International Migration at Georgetown University, who will respond to the findings of The Price of Rights. The discussion will be moderated by Daniel Costa, EPI’s Director of Immigration Law and Policy Research.
