What Should We Do About the Crisis at the Border?

A debate on immigration—in Texas—that you won’t want to miss.

By The Free Press

March 12, 2024

As the crisis at the southern border rages on, there is more discord than ever over what to do about it. Today, the Supreme Court extended a pause on Senate Bill 4, a Texas law that was set to take effect on Wednesday, which would allow the police to arrest migrants suspected of entering the country illegally. The law has been described as one of the toughest state immigration laws in U.S. history—and was heavily protested earlier this week.

Immigration continues to top the list of the issues most important to voters in the upcoming presidential election. Americans on the left and right agree that our immigration system is broken. 

But how do we fix it? 

That’s what we’ll debate live on April 11 at the Majestic Theatre in Dallas, Texas. 

Best-selling author Ann Coulter and Sohrab Ahmari, founder and editor of Compact, will argue that the U.S should shut its borders. They will face off against Nick Gillespie, editor-at-large for Reason magazine, and Cenk Uygur, founder of The Young Turks.

Welcome to The FP Community!

Our comments are an editorial product for our readers to have smart, thoughtful conversations and debates — the sort we need more of in America today. The sort of debate we love.   

We have standards in our comments section just as we do in our journalism. If you’re being a jerk, we might delete that one. And if you’re being a jerk for a long time, we might remove you from the comments section. 

Common Sense was our original name, so please use some when posting. Here are some guidelines:

  • We have a simple rule for all Free Press staff: act online the way you act in real life. We think that’s a good rule for everyone.
  • We drop an occasional F-bomb ourselves, but try to keep your profanities in check. We’re proud to have Free Press readers of every age, and we want to model good behavior for them. (Hello to Intern Julia!)
  • Speaking of obscenities, don’t hurl them at each other. Harassment, threats, and derogatory comments that derail productive conversation are a hard no.
  • Criticizing and wrestling with what you read here is great. Our rule of thumb is that smart people debate ideas, dumb people debate identity. So keep it classy. 
  • Don’t spam, solicit, or advertise here. Submit your recommendations to if you really think our audience needs to hear about it.
