president donald trump was successful in his candidacy in part because he skillfully stoked fears about immigrants. to hear president trump tell it, undocumented immigration is a threat to america’s greatness.

how does such a vulnerable group, approximately 3.5% of the total u.s population and 5.6% of the u.s workforce undermine america?

maybe the real threat posed by migrants is that we invalidate the american notion of a meritocracy. if immigrants, whose presence defines aspiration and self reliance, are not meritorious, then the united states cannot be a land of equal opportunity. we'll discuss.
