Immigration Reform: Work to be Done
PFF and the National Chamber Foundation Co-host June 19th Book Event with Jason Riley

WASHINGTON D.C. - On June 19th, The Progress & Freedom Foundation and the National Chamber Foundation (NCF) will co-host a book event featuring Jason Riley, author of a newly published book on immigration reform. "Immigration Reform: Work to be Done" will explore the highly divisive issue of immigration and its relation to America's competitiveness in the global economy.

The event will feature a conference call question and answer session with Jason Riley, author of "Let Them In: The Case for Open Borders," a member of the Wall Street Journal's editorial board. The call will be moderated by Bret Swanson, Senior Fellow, PFF. After the dialogue with Riley, the author will join a variety of experts for a panel discussion exploring immigration issues specifically affecting high-skilled workers. A book signing and reception will follow the panel. A detailed agenda is available on the NCF website.

"Immigration Reform: Work to be Done," will be held on June 19th at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce from 1:00pm - 5:00pm. The Chamber is located at 1615 H Street, NW in Washington, DC. Those wishing to attend should register online. Questions should be addressed to Ben Askin at (202) 463-5500 or ncfevents@uschamber.com. Members of the press can contact Amy Smorodin at 202-289-8928 or asmorodin@pff.org.

The event is the first co-organized by PFF's new Center for Global Innovation, led by Senior Fellow Bret Swanson. The Center's goal is to offer new research and more effective arguments to explain the broad benefits of American technology and globalization to the public. The Center works to advocate openness, innovation, and dynamism in the global digital economy. This means free trade, stable monetary policy, limited international regulation, smart immigration policy, and protection of intellectual property.
