KEY PLAYERS

Here are the opinion leaders chosen by Ideaspace as Key Players in the U.S. immigration policy debate. We believe these are the individuals with the most power to reach and sway large or otherwise consequential audiences with their ideas and actions in the immigration policy sphere.

Half of the Key Players are on the political left and half on the right, arranged in each column with the most centrist near the top and those whose views are farthest from the center at the bottom. Each profile provides a brief biography of the Key Player and a summary of his or her ideas on U.S. immigration policy. 

The Ideaspace staff assessed each Key Player’s public record as we made difficult decisions about where to position each individual. If you think we have mispositioned anyone, please contact us with your thoughts on what placement would be more accurate and fair.
