Issues and Ideas Forum
Immigration reform continues to be a hotly debated topic at both the federal and state levels, with Congress discussing a variety of proposals across the political spectrum and Gov. Rick Snyder announcing during his 2014 State of the State address that he wants to open a “Michigan Office for New Americans” to attract more immigrants to the Great Lake State.
This Issues and Ideas Forum will look at the question from a free-market perspective. Our speakers will be Alex Nowrasteh, an immigration policy analyst at the Cato Institute; Bing Goei, a Grand Rapids businessman appointed by Gov. Rick Snyder to head the Michigan Office for New Americans; and Helen Krieble, founder and president of The Vernon K. Krieble Foundation and creator of the “Red Card Solution,” a plan that could curb illegal immigration by offering non-citizen work permits that do not lead to citizenship.
