Susan F. Martin, PhD Biography

Title:
Executive Director of the Institute for the Study of International Migration in the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
Reasoning:

“A strategy of cooperation between host countries and countries of origin can address the problems of the three major immigration actors through a series of tradeoffs that facilitate the improved management of legal migration flows and better deal with illegal flows… This cooperation should be based on the recognition that the best migration policy is one that seeks not to block but to regulate smoothly international flows of people.”
