Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes Edward Alden of the Council on Foreign Relations for a discussion of his new book, "The Closing of the American Border." Alden, former Washington bureau chief of the Financial Times, discusses the Bush administration's response to 9/11 and the consequences for America's commitment to open borders and leadership of globalization. He details how a policy of smart borders and risk management is sacrificed as the bitter debates about immigration policy take center stage. (#15744)
