The analysts for American Immigration policies during the Fall of 2020 are some of George Mason’s brightest young men and women. Hailing from a variety of backgrounds, their approaches to immigration often clash, while all serving the needs of American everywhere. Amongst them, these young professionals represent a variety of political agendas which don’t align with the traditional republican or democrat values, and rather represent a more blended and modern view on political dealings.

John Weiller is a graduating senior studying Global Affairs. Eight years of reading The Economist religiously have left him with an interest in European migration policy, and a worrying tendency to add superfluous u’s to perfectly good o’s. He’s excited to graduate this December, and to hopefully be able to go out and celebrate that by next December.
