Securing Human Mobility in the Age of Risk: New Challenges for Travel, Migration, and Borders

Posted in US Immigration Policy, Mobility and Security, International Migration by migrationpolicy on April 22nd, 2010

A book discussion with author Susan Ginsburg, MPI nonresident fellow and former senior counsel to the 9/11 Commission; ACLU Policy Counsel and former FBI agent Michael German; Luis Rubio, President, Center of Research for Development (CIDAC) and instructor at Mexico's intelligence agency school; and Don Kerwin, MPI Vice President for Programs. The book makes the case that the nation’s post-9/11 approach to immigration and border security is off-kilter and not keeping pace with the scope and complexity of people’s movement around the world, and proposes a new paradigm that seeks to secure mobility while moving away from a system that too often conflates border and immigration enforcement with counterterrorism.
