What are the Issues?
The immigration issue affects virtually every American, directly or indirectly, often
in deeply personal ways. This guide is designed to help people deliberate together
about how we should approach the issue. The three options presented here reflect
different ways of understanding what is at stake and force us to think about what
matters most to us when we face difficult problems that involve all of us and that do
not have perfect solutions.
The issue raises a number of difficult questions, and there are no easy answers.
The concerns that underlie this issue are not confined to party affiliation, nor are
they captured by labels like “conservative” or “liberal.”
The research involved in developing the guide included interviews and
conversations with Americans from all walks of life, as well as surveys of
nonpartisan public-opinion research, subject-matter scans, and reviews of initial
drafts by people with direct experience with the subject.
