Immigration, Open Borders, and a Free Society

A chance to talk about real world issues with students who care about them, from Charlie Smith ’15:

Political dialogue on immigration policy can best be characterized as broken or nonexistent.

However, what are the costs, dangers, and challenges associated with a policy of open borders? And do the benefits outweigh the costs?
