Council on Foreign Relations Report -- Immigration Reform Needed

A widely publicized report has been issued by the Council on Foreign Relations regarding the need for Comprehensive Immigration Reform in the United States. The bipartisan task force signing off on the report includes members such as Jeb Bush and former Clinton Whitehouse Chief of Staff "Mack" Mc Larty.


The task force argues that our national economic and foreign relations interests require that we improve our present immigration system. They focus on increasing immigration that helps innovation, entrepreneurship and technological advancement; improving enforcement to discourage employers from hiring unauthorized immigrant employees; and encouraging foreign exchange and immigration including from areas of the world that are not particularly friendly to the United States.
