    Ep. 170: Reducing Poverty by Making the Most of Existing Migration Pathways

    In this week’s episode, BPC Senior Advisor Theresa Cardinal Brown and Associate Director Jack Malde chat with Jason Wendle, an expert in migration and labor mobility. We speak about various initiatives that Jason is involved in that facilitate migration from lower-income to higher-income countries by increasing the use of existing migratory pathways. Such initiatives can benefit those on the move, the countries that welcome them, and the countries they (often temporarily) leave behind, without the need to change immigration law.

One promising approach, that will be the subject of Professor Kustov’s forthcoming book “In Our Interest: How to Make Immigration Popular”, is adopting demonstrably beneficial policies that make voters confident their government is managing immigration in their interest.

No credence to transparent lie

Why would anyone believe that the Trump Administration wants to protect asylum applicants from Mexico by sending them to Guatemala? Do they send Guatemalans to Mexico? Hondurans to Nicaragua? They do not.

A fair and informative discussion on immigration

I listened to a few episodes and I am really impressed how fair and knowledgeable the guests are and how fair the discussion and host are. But it’s not just about being fair, it’s about being informative and this podcast is just that. I really hope our elected leaders genuinely concerned about immigration listen to this podcast
