Region-Based Visas in the Atlantic Cities Blog

+ Brandon Fuller

Sean Rust and I make the case for region-based visas over at the Atlantic Cities blog.

America’s cities are the engines of its growth. Though the immigration bill before Congress would help cities by increasing the flow of legal migrants, cities would be even better served by a bill that makes immigration decisions local. State governments are in a far better position to understand the immigration needs of the towns and cities within their borders. The federal government should allow them to sponsor region-based visas.
