美国有关移民的辩论被引入歧途

美国参议院正在展开一场有关移民问题的辩论,这场辩论将讨论数个建议。这些建议包括一项令人憎恨的法案,即规定沿着美国和墨西哥边境修筑一堵高墙,并且将非法进入美国定为一项重罪。美国众议院已经批准了这一法案。

美国参议院还将考虑一项由参议员肯尼迪和麦肯恩联合提出的法案。这一法案建议加强边境执法,设立可以导向居留权和国籍的临时工作项目以及将美国境内的无证人员合法化。另一个主张是要求任何在美国境内想要获得正常移民资格的人返回祖国并在那里等候。

最后一项建议基本上是夸夸其谈。很难想象任何一个已经在美国的墨西哥人主动返回到比如卡萨特卡斯的地方耐心排队等候新的签证。几乎在五年前,当布什总统在瓜纳华托拜访福克斯总统的时候承诺与墨西哥签订一项移民协议以来,他一直就躲避这个问题。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
