Is the U.S. currently experiencing unprecedented levels of immigration? Were immigrants in the past more upwardly mobile than immigrants today? Are Americans really so divided on the issue of immigration?
In a recent Princeton Talks lecture, Leah Boustan, Professor of Economics and Director of Princeton’s Industrial Relations Section, reviews several prevailing myths about U.S. immigration and argues that data and facts, not ideology, should influence immigration policy and debates.
Produced by the Princeton Public Lectures Committee, the Princeton Talks series features short, informal and recorded presentations delivered by university faculty.
