Tempest Tossed

The current debate on U.S. immigration policy has been fast moving, partisan, and hard to keep up with. For a more thorough, informed, and nuanced discussion tune into Tempest Tossed – a podcast on migration and mobility that goes beyond the talking points.

Each episode, we sit down with leading immigration policy experts, journalists, artists, and migrants for conversations that go beyond the usual narratives and sound bites — conversations that challenge us to think more deeply about policy, what’s happening on the ground, and what we can do about it.

Efforts relating to COVID-19

Successful immigration policy reform will depend upon the quality and coordination of the top personnel in a number of federal agencies as well as effective leadership by the White House. The new administration will need to pay particular attention to the knowledge, qualifications and character of those selected to fill these positions.
