The arguments over undocumented immigration and reforming the U.S. immigration system have changed publicly in the nearly three years of the Trump Administration.

Over that period, there's been a focus on modified paths to citizenship or legalization, and the debate over the wall naturally leads to talk about the number of people who should be allowed into the U.S. and how to keep thousands, even millions, of other people out.

George Mason University economist Bryan Caplan argued, via his new graphic non-fiction work "Open Borders: The Science and Ethics of Immigration," that keeping people out of the U.S. is not the best direction.

As his book title indicates, he favors open borders.

Caplan and the artist who helped bring these complex ideas to life, Zach Weinersmith, joined The Show to talk about this topic.
