Some Good Insights On Immigration
In one of my macro sections we read a chapter in The Economics of Macroissues on immigration. Of course, it is a big issue in this election year. The Sunday New York Times magazine had an in-depth article on immigration a couple of years ago.

The article paints a generally favorable view of immigration, although Borjas finds a downside.
