NYTimes Explore How Immigration Impacts US

The New York Times today launched A Room To Debate, a new forum and discussion group focusing on the impact of immigrants on the U.S.

Rather than just let readers battle it out which typically degenirates into a bigoted conversation full of hate, The Gray Lady assembled top advisors from different perspectives and backgrounds to provide their input. Readers can still comment, but that is clearly not the focus.

Today's discussion surrounds education and the debate over English as a Second Language (ESL). This type of dialogue is critical for America as we continue to grapple with concerns over job loss, illegal immigration and the overall impact of the changing face of America. Be sure to follow this dynamic conversation.
