A clear majority of US citizens oppose expanding the wall on the US-Mexico border. Less defined is an effective border policy that would be widely supported. Daniel Restrepo, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress and former Western Hemisphere advisor to President Barack Obama; Jacob Soboroff, NBC News and MSNBC correspondent; and Roberto Suro, professor of journalism at the USC Annenberg School and scholar of US immigration policy, examine progressive, humane visions for border control and immigration policy.

Moderated by Univision journalist and Slate columnist León Krauze.
