アメリカの見当違いな移民討論

米国の上院において、移民に関する討論が始まっている。この討論においては、いくつかの提案が取り上げられることになる。その中には(既に下院が承認した)米国-メキシコ国境に沿う壁の建設費を提供し、米国への無許可の入国を重罪と位置づけることになる、疎ましい議案も含まれている。

米国上院では、エドワード・ケネディー上院議員、ジョン・マッケイン上院議員共著による議案についても検討される。彼らは、国境のさらなる強化、研修期間と市民権取得へのチャンスを含む臨時労働者プログラム、そして既に米国に住んでいる不法滞在者たちのための合法化などを提案している。また、移住手続きを整えたいと望む者全てに対し、いったん帰国したうえでの順番待ちを求めるという考えがある。

この最後の構成部分は主として修辞的である。すでにアメリカにいるメキシコ人が自ら、新しいビザ交付を忍耐強く待つために、例えばサカテカスの町へ戻るとは想像し難い。ジョージ・W・ブッシュ大統領は、ほぼちょうど5年前、グァナファトにヴィセンテ・フォックス大統領を訪問し、メキシコとの移住協定への尽力を約束して以来、この問題を回避し続けてきた。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    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.
