    • Politics

Are we headed for a tribal fracture to the degree of another civil war? Are borders and enforced immigration laws racist? Reihan Salam discusses the complicated discourse around immigration, and why uncontrolled immigration is bad for everyone. His new book is, "Melting Pot or Civil War?: A Son of Immigrants Makes the Case Against Open Borders." He is the executive editor of National Review.

"Our politics right now feels like the Four Loko-ization of ideas, rather than actually taking ideas in their rich, complicated context," Salam said.
