With a 60-37 vote the crowd at Tuesday night's Intelligence Squared, U.S., forum on illegal immigration passed a resolution declaring that America should stop welcoming undocumented immigrants. The debate took place at the Asia Society and Museum in Manhattan.


Panelists for the debate were Vernon M. Briggs, Jr. of Cornell University, Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies, andHeather Mac Donald of Manhattan Institute speaking forthe motion, andDaniel T. Griswold of Cato University, Enrique Morones of Border Angels and Karen K. Narasaki of the Asian American Justice Center speaking againstthe motion. John Hockenberry, served as moderator.



"Immigration reform is a very timely topic and one that clearly doesn't divide people along typical ideological lines," said Robert Rosenkranz, chairman of The Rosenkranz Foundation, which sponsored the debate. "These debates demonstrate that it is possible to have a civil and meaningful discussion on topics that are usually quite polarizing," he added.
