Second Reading Podcast: On the structural context of the politics of immigration and border security in Texas

In a new Second Reading Podcast, Jim Henson and Josh Blank consider the structural context of the politics of border security and immigration in Texas, from the complexity of immigration a policy issue to the cultural politics driving the continued salience of the issue among Republican voters.

The podcast refers to many results related to immigration, border security, and migration. A search result from our polling data archive compiles more than 100 results. A few highlights are included below.
