Examining The ‘Rational Middle’ of Immigration

What is the rational middle of the immigration debate? Loren Steffy, former Houston Chronicle columnist has spent the last several months focused on immigration reform and director Gregory Kallenberg joins Houston Matters to share their insights on the subject of the video project.

Demonstrators march through downtown Austin in (February, 2017). Protesters are targeting recent immigration raids around the country.

We occasionally call on energy watcher Loren Steffy to join us to share his insights on an industry that’s a critical piece of Greater Houston’s economy. But the former Houston Chronicle columnist has spent the last several months focused on a different topic: immigration reform.

His work with director Gregory Kallenberg has led to a video series on the same subject, called The Rational Middle of Immigration.

We talk with Steffy and Kallenberg about what they believe constitutes the “rational middle” in this debate. The first of the videos will be unveiled at a dinner tonight (Nov. 2) hosted by the Center for Houston’s Future.
