The Melting Pot Boiling Point: Immigration Debate
Immigration Policy Chief Carlos Iturregui
at The City Club of Cleveland


CLEVELAND: Carlos Iturregui, chief of the Citizenship and Immigration Services Office of Policy and Strategy at the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Service, will speak about the immigration debate and the administration’s policy at noon on Friday, June 2, 2006, at The City Club of Cleveland.


Immigration reform and securing the U.S.-Mexican border have become hot button issues for leaders in Washington, D.C. On May 15, President Bush released his plan for comprehensive immigration reform in a televised speech from the Oval Office. In that address, he called on the nation and Congress to find a “rational middle ground” on immigration.


Bush’s plan outlined five objectives: “securing” the borders, which included dispatching up to 6,000 National Guard troops to the border and building 300-700 miles of additional wall only along the Mexican-U.S. border; creating a temporary worker program; holding employers accountable for workers; dealing with the 11-12 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States; and honoring the U.S.-American tradition of the melting pot.


Should undocumented immigrants have a path to citizenship? How should a guestworker program be developed? Are immigrants an asset or threat to the U.S. economy? How does Bush’s “war on terror” fit into the picture? What is an appropriate border policy for a region of the nation so closely linked culturally and economically to its neighbor? The southwest portions of the United States once belonged to México until the U.S. invasion of México in 1846.   


Iturregui is responsible for making policy recommendations, performing policy research and analysis on all national immigration services issues, and ensuring that policies developed for USCIS are pursuing the Department of Homeland Security main objective of “keeping the homeland secure.”
