"Immigration Reform: What’s to be Done?”
Ann Chih Lin, Associate Professor of Public Policy in the Ford School and of Political Science in LSA, studies policy implementation: the provisions that make policy easy or difficult to implement, the beliefs and behavior of people who implement policies, and the reactions of those who are targeted by policy. She is currently studying potential immigration policies, such as guestworker programs and legalization, and the political beliefs of American immigrants, with a specific focus on Arab Americans. She is the co-director of the Detroit Arab American Study and co-author of the recent Citizenship in Crisis: Arab Detroit After 9/11. Professor Chih Lin has recently given public commentary on various proposals for immigration reform: join her for an in-depth discussion of this current hot topic.
