Widener University School of Law recognizes article by Matthew I. Hirsch
Adjunct professor of Immigration and Nationality Law Matthew I. Hirsch, a member of the Board of Trustees of the American Immigration Council, recently wrote an article that appeared in several local newspapers. Sharing the subject matter expertise that he provides to the students in his classes, he wrote about five compelling reasons for immigration reform that go beyond political capital.
“Economics favor legalizing the undocumented. No one thinks it is possible to deport the undocumented. Estimated costs of removal of the undocumented exceed $200 billion. No one in Washington thinks that is a good idea,” writes Hirsch of the economic realities of immigration reform in the article, which appeared in The Morning Call, The News Journal, The Patriot-News, and The Times of Trenton.
