Ideaspace sets out to find and encourage bipartisan consensus on U.S. immigration policy. We look for such consensus, current or potential, within the general public, the immigration policy community and all levels of government, especially Congress.

To serve this purpose we are bringing together in this State of Play section three complementary features:

  • Ideaspace® Crib Sheet, our tally, to be updated periodically, of anticipated executive actions and potential bipartisan congressional actions;
  • Strategic Inquiries by our staff into consequential facets of the U.S. immigration policy debate; and
  • Ideaspace Interviews with influential leaders in this debate. 

This space will also provide a curated home for emails submitted by our users to:
