Detroit, Region Based Visas, & the Politics of Immigration
+ Brandon Fuller
I recently had a chance to talk about region-based visas (an idea I've explored elsewhere with Sean Rust) with A Martínez, the co-host Take Two, a program on Southern California's NPR affiliate KPCC. We discussed the merits of allowing states like Michigan to attract immigrants and channel them to struggling regions such as Detroit. We also touched on how a more federalist approach to immigration in the United States, an approach closer to Canada’s, could alter the political dynamics of immigration.
