7/18/19, Migration Policy Institute: MPI and Colegio de México Experts Outline Solutions for the U.S. and Mexico to Resolve the Border Migration Crisis
With apprehensions of Guatemalans, Hondurans and Salvadorans at the U.S.-Mexico border more than tripling over the past year and deportations from Mexico rising more than 50 percent from May to June, the U.S. and Mexican governments have been searching for ways to alleviate the migration crisis and stem irregular flows from Central America.
The policy solutions have been enforcement-minded and focused on the immediate term, and in the U.S. case on narrowing access to asylum.

Kettering Institute: Beyond the Clash: How a Deliberative Public Talks about Immigration
This report on the 2018 National Issues Forums on immigration offers a powerful demonstration that typical Americans with differing views can exchange ideas on immigration and that, as they listen to one another, their views become more nuanced and pragmatic. Most important, it shows that people with different starting points can and will find areas of common ground for action on which they would be willing to come together. And time after time, in all kinds of settings, participants leave the forums wishing that their elected officials, too, could begin looking for areas of agreement and hammering out a more lasting solution. For policymakers, these deliberative forums provide a different kind of knowledge that can uniquely outline the bounds of political permission within which they have room to lead.
