This issue of Cityscape is dedicated to various issues having to do with the public policy debate about immigration in the United States. The project was initiated in 2007, after a proposal for comprehensive immigration reform was not enacted. At that time, passions of those participating in the debate ran high, and it seemed that more and better information on immigrants and immigration outcomes was needed. Toward that end, the contributors to this Cityscape symposium have produced original, scientific research aimed at developing empirical evidence that may be useful to policymakers and other interest groups as the discussion is renewed.
