Is America’s immigration system in crisis?
WITH THE lifting of Title 42, America is once again forced to consider its border policy, just as Democrat-run cities struggle to find shelter for busloads of migrants sent north from the US-Mexico border. What responsibilities do states and cities far from the border have? And with Congress frozen, what can President Biden actually do? Doris Meissner of the Migration Policy Institute talks through the dilemmas facing the Biden administration and Rosemarie Ward reports from the town of Newburgh, where migrants are being sent from New York City shelters. John Prideaux hosts with Charlotte Howard and Idrees Kahloon. Runtime 44 min We would love to hear from you. Please fill out our listener survey at economist.com/uspodsurvey.
