What did the Schengen Agreement mean for Europe – and what lessons does it provide for the rest of the world? According to New York Law School professor Lenni Benson, a leading thinker on immigration and immigration reform, the agreement represents an admittedly imperfect but ultimately successful immigration policy that the U.S. should emulate. Benson also talked to Big Think about the United States’ misunderstood history with immigration and its difficult-to-navigate immigration policies, as well as T ed Kennedy’s remarkable achievements in making life easier for immigrants.
