Video: NAFTA and How U.S. Trade Policy Impacts Immigration

February 13, 2014Shahid Haque

In our national debates on immigration reform, we typically omit an extraordinarily important component of the whole discussion:  How U.S. trade policy impacts immigration.  Understanding how trade policies such as NAFTA actually create and drive undocumented immigration is essential to the discussion, and  is perhaps the missing link to greater public understanding and appreciation of the need for immigration reform.  However, these are complex issues, and we rarely have the opportunity to delve into them.This is why I was so pleased to be interviewed on these topics by Will Boland for the Helena Civic TV show “Everybody’s Business.”  

We conducted the interview on January 9, 2014.
