ABSTRACT
The article presents a hypothetical scenario in which the U.S.-Mexico border was completely opened to Mexican nationals. The policy issues related to the concept of an open border are discussed, as well as the policy paralysis exhibited by the U.S. government on the topic of immigration under both Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. The authors' background is also discussed, noting their conservative political beliefs, identity as first-generation immigrants to the U.S., and probable lack of competition with Mexicans in the job market.
