Council on Foreign Relations Releases Task Force Report on U.S. Immigration Policy

On July 8, 2008, the Council on Foreign Relations released an Independent Task Force Report on U.S. Immigration Policy. The Task Force, co-chaired by former Florida governor Jeb Bush and former White House chief of staff Thomas “Mack” McLarty, concludes “The continued failure to devise and implement a sound and sustainable immigration policy threatens to weaken America’s economy, to jeopardize its diplomacy, and to imperil its national security.”

The findings of the report reflect the consensus of a bipartisan group of leaders in the fields of immigration policy, homeland security, education, labor, business, academia and human rights.
