This edition: Allan J. Wernick, Prof. of Immigration Law, Baruch College, (Pt. 2 of 2)Tweet
Original tape date: April 11, 2006.
In the second part of this two part series, Mr. Wernick discusses the changing face of not only America, but the world and how this is reflected in the changing definition of the “essence” of being an American. He explains what he sees as the social, cultural and political ramifications of the current debates for the future, focusing on the idea of giving non-citizens the right to vote. Mr. Wernick shares the fact that he has, in the past, underestimated the drive and dedication of the immigrant community to organize and demonstrate, and the fact that these demonstrations have acted as the impetus to the changing laws. He also explains the new “compromise” bill that combines parts of all of the bills that have been introduced, sharing his view that its complicated nature would cause massive disorder if it were enacted. This leads this to a discussion of “Wernick's Way,” Allan Wernick's views on the best way to reform immigration.
