WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

America, built up by the hard work of its immigrants, now finds itself home to an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants. The federal government, even under the reform-friendly tenure of President George W. Bush, has been unable to find the consensus to overhaul our country's immigration laws. Both the Dream Act and an Arizona statute requiring police officers to detain anyone they suspect to be illegal, has brought the debate back to the forefront of national politics. Are immigrants taking American jobs, or, does immigration help our economy? And is there any difference between low-skilled and highly-skilled immigrants and is it time to honor this distinction? For the Motion: Kris Koback & Tom Tancredo Against the Motion: Mayor Julian Castro & Tamar Jacoby Reception: 5:45pm - 6:30pm Debate: 6:45pm - 8:30pm
