In this episode, we chat with Daniel Di Martino, a politically conservative international student from Venezuela and Ph.D. candidate in economics at Columbia University. Daniel recounts his experience growing up in Venezuela and shares his perspective on the nation's ongoing economic and political turmoil. Daniel also assesses the U.S. immigration system from his perspective as an economist, conservative, and Venezuelan. He offers his thoughts on why conservatives should welcome migrants escaping oppressive regimes, the unwarranted skepticism of highly-skilled immigration, and his hopes for an improved immigration system moving forward.
