Elizabeth F. Cohen joins the Majority Report to discuss her new book, Illegal: How America's Lawless Immigration Regime Threatens Us All. The Trump administration has intensified the persecution of immigrants to a fever pitch in recent years. In this book, Cohen traces the history of immigration restrictions in the US and the factors driving them, from the Johnson-Reed Act of 1924, to the Hart-Celler Act of 1965, to the War on Drugs, to the post-9/11 era. She ends with some recommendations on how to improve immigration policy.
