Conservative political commentator Reihan Salam believes that all Americans want an immigration system that is under control, regardless of their political party. In his new book “Melting Pot or Civil War?,” the National Review executive editor argues that our current system has alienated the working class and is doing a disservice to the children of poor immigrants. Salam joins Forum to talk about the book, how being the son of Bangladeshi immigrants colors his views and why previous attempts to fix the immigration system failed.
