Alex Nowrasteh is an immigration research and director of economic and social policy studies at the Cato Institute, as well as the author of the book “Wretched Refuse?: The Political Economy of Immigration and Institutions”. We discuss immigration, the US legal immigration system, the immigration bureaucracy, appeals to chaos and order, libertarianism, populism, whether politics is driven by ideas or personalities, political violence, and electoral systems.
