Migration Policy Institute

Immigration has occupied a more central role in U.S. policy and politics over the past several years than in any prior administration. The Trump White House has presided over a dramatic reshaping of virtually every corner of the U.S. immigration system. As a result, the United States appears on course to experience a marked—perhaps historic—decline in legal immigration. This is occurring against the backdrop of a national conversation on racial equity that features intersections with immigration politics and policies.

As the general election nears, this conversation with nationally renowned political analysts will examine the role of immigration in today’s presidential politics, how the parties’ immigration stances have evolved, and whether the currents buffeting the immigration debate represent a short-term reality or suggest a longer cycle of change may be emerging. The discussion also will focus on what the extraordinary shift in immigration policy and politics during the past four years signals for the future of the country.
