LifeZette asked leading experts and activists on immigration policy to address one question: Is America’s immigration system in decline?

The experts agreed the nation faces an escalating immigration and refugee crisis. They point to a lack of American political will to take on both the structural immigration challenges for the nation and to fight the radical policies pushed by the current administration as the chief culprits of the expanding crisis.

The administration’s assault on the rule of law and unprecedented unilateral action on refugees have together brought a surge of foreigners — legal and illegal — into the nation without an opportunity for assimilation.

The economic impact has also been significant. The massive increase in predominantly low-skilled laborers has contributed to stagnant wage growth for American workers and nullified much of the job gains made in the tepid economic recovery.
