Mexico Institute Senior Advisor and Wilson Center Executive Vice President Andrew Selee is the guest for part four of the series, “Charting a New Course.” In this episode we focus on the migration agenda and related issues and policies between the U.S. and Mexico. Immigration issues have loomed large in U.S. politics for some time now, but how much is really understood about migration patterns between the North American neighbors?  Selee sheds much needed light on an issue too often the subject of heat in this edition of Wilson Center NOW
