"Throughout its history, MPI has placed major focus on analysis of the US immigration system and the complex demographic, economic, political, foreign policy, and other trends that affect immigration to the United States. Through its US Immigration Policy program and key efforts such as the MPI-convened Independent Task Force on Immigration and America’s Future (co-chaired by former Sen. Spencer Abraham [R-MI] and former Rep. Lee Hamilton [D-IN] and with members such as Sens. Edward Kennedy [D-MA] and John McCain [R-AZ]) MPI has offered influential thought leadership and policy recommendations regarding ways to improve the US immigration system. Key research reports that touch upon the current immigration debate in Washington are collected here." - MPI, March 2013.
