The Udall Center's Immigration Policy Program aims to illuminate the complexities of immigration in a global economy.

By working at the intersection of academic research and public policy, the program's primary goal is to promote reasoned dialogue on immigration that avoids simplistic formulations and examines immigration to the United States in the context of current law and global political and economic realities.

Because an enforceable immigration policy must balance complex social, political, economic, and national security interests, the program's secondary objective is to foster a deeper understanding of the tradeoffs involved in formulating immigration policy so that the key elements of an enforceable system are identified.

These objectives will be accomplished by providing credible, independent information on immigration and by bringing together stakeholders, expert researchers, and policymakers in a structured, interactive setting designed to illuminate issues, identify common ground, and explore solutions to the problems facing the immigration system.
