With large demonstrations throughout the U.S., immigration issues are again receiving intensive attention. Are the many new immigrants depressing wages or even causing difficulties for the U.S. middle class to survive?�On the other hand, how will sectors such as agriculture and the service industry survive without an ample supply of immigrants willing to work for lower wages? Do these immigrants represent a security risk for the U.S.?�These and other topics will be taken up by the panelists.
