About Us

“The Case For Immigration” podcast explores issues in American history, economics, political philosophy, and culture and argues that large-scale immigration benefits Americans across income levels and strengthens American culture. The podcast argues that cuts to current immigration levels would leave America weaker, smaller, less innovative, less optimistic, less religious, and less able to meet its fiscal obligations. The podcast is hosted by Nathan Brown, an immigration lawyer in Fresno, California.

5. The Life-Boat is Not Full; Also It’s Not a Life-Boat

I recently talked with philosophy professor Andrew Fiala about immigration and “Life-Boat Ethics”, whether the economy is a zero-sum game, how immigration affects the environment, the American origins of the MS-13 street gang, and reasons immigrants commit crimes at lower rates than other segments of the population. Notes: Andrew Fiala, "Trump: America is ‘full’ and cannot accept newcomers. The Golden Rule says otherwise", FRESNO BEE, April 11, 2019.

Asylum: Charity or Something More?

I recently spoke with human rights legal scholar Silas Allard about asylum. He argues that we should stop thinking that it's merely an act of charity when the United States grants asylum to a person fleeing persecution. He argues that a person has not only a right, but a duty, to flee persecution. Allard, Silas W. "Reimagining Asylum: Religious Narratives and the Moral Obligation to the Asylum Seeker."Refuge Vol 29, No 1 (2013): 121-129.

The Dream Act & Deferred Action, A Partial History

I recently spoke with Don Riding, former local INS & USCIS director for Fresno, CA, about the history of the “Dream Act” and “deferred action”, why he supports it but not DACA, why deporting millions of immigrants already living here would be a nightmare, how both Republicans and Democrats undermine practical compromises, the time John Lennon almost got deported, how in the past US citizen women lost their US citizenship upon marrying a foreigner, and many other interesting immigration topics.

Amnesty & the Rule of Law

Amnesty opponents often argue that any immigrant who entered the country illegally must be deported because America was founded on the rule of law. In this episode, the host explains how this argument overlooks America's rebellious past and argues that anti-immigration hawks confuse "rule of law" with "law and order." This episode makes the case that there's plenty of room in America's rule of law tradition for flexibility and humanity in our immigration policies.
