In this episode of This Week in Immigration we focus once again on the US-Mexico border.  First, Hanadi Jordan speaks with David Stout, a county commissioner from El Paso County Texas, and chair of the National Association of Counties’ Immigration Reform Task Force to get the local perspective on the situation at the border, what counties like El Paso are doing to manage the arrivals of immigrants, the recent visits to El Paso of President Biden and a bipartisan group of Senators and what he thinks needs to be done.  Next, Theresa Cardinal Brown interviews Andrew Selee, President of the Migration Policy Institute about the issue of migration in the hemisphere, US-Mexico cooperation at the North American Leader’s Summit and what else needs to be done to manage what is an increasingly complex issue for all the countries of Latin America. This episode was recorded on January 20 and January 24, 2023.
