About the Lecture

Legal and illegal migration is one of the most significant international issues in the 21st century, and certainly is a durable public issue in the United States. This speech explains the roots and effects of the current controversy over illegal immigration. Based on the speaker’s experiences as Secretary of Homeland Security in designing the currently successful Secure Border Initiative and in negotiating the 2007 bi-partisan Senate comprehensive immigration proposal, this speech provides an inside look at the policies, practicalities and politics of one of the salient public policy issues of the decade. The speech will analyze what worked and what didn’t in the 2007 comprehensive immigration bill, and suggests a likely way forward. It analyzes likely trends in enforcement, and the prospects for increased legal immigration, especially for high-skilled workers. Based on the speaker’s experiences with international counterparts, this speech will also put immigration in the larger context of global migration.
