Immigration is a complex issue; narrowing the concentration of the conversation to two topics- the policies we should have to address this and how illegal immigration should be addressed - helps people to focus their conversations. In terms of what could have been stronger, I would have liked more information under the "How We Got There" section about the political climate during 2007 when the proposed legislation was presented. More about reactions to this piece of legislation would have been helpful. I struggle to limit my option ideas to three approaches, but the ones in this guide reflect a broad enough range of perspectives for most people to see some of their views within these. I could see this guide leading to some productive conversations. The only other change I would recommend is in the Quotes to Consider section. All views on this page have a face, except for the view that notes a policy change needs to take place, resulting in less need for enforcement. In my opinion, a perspective with such a strong potential impact should have a face, not just an organizational statement associated with it.
