ABSTRACT
The article discusses the institutionalist viewpoint on immigration issues. There are several opposing opinions for and against increasing or decreasing immigration restrictions. Several economists, including Thorstein Veblen, believed that there should exist less restrictive policies as restricting migration would prohibit the growth of industrial efficiency. However, economists such as John R. Commons believed that a more lenient immigration policy would lead to class conflicts and an influx of a less desirable class of immigrant.
