Young Voices Published in TheLocal Germany Writing About Public Infrastructure Projects

Young Voices Director Fred Roeder was published by TheLocal Germany writing about the failure of large-scale public infrastructure projects in Germany.

While Berlin’s airport story developed into a never-ending tale of scandals and failure, Frankfurt and Munich expanded their capacities by benefiting from private capital and know-how that helped shape the future of those hubs.


But in Berlin the failures of politicians to directly oversee the construction of an airport has led to cost explosions and continuously deprives Berliners of the ability to be well-connected to the rest of the world.

Associate Cathy Reisenwitz Published in Reason

Young Voices Associate Cathy Reisenwitz was published Sunday by Reason writing about E-Verify:

Opinions are mixed on the bill as a whole. Republicans claim the bill will increase budget deficits and unemployment, while decreasing native-born workers’ wages. Democrats claim that immigration reform will reduce the federal deficit.

One thing that isn’t up for debate are the significant drawbacks to mandating use of E-Verify for all US employers. Forcing United States businesses to use the system will encourage employers to discriminate against potential hires on the basis of nationality. Technical glitches will keep legal employees out of jobs. And creating one more national database for federal agencies to mine will pose a significant Fourth Amendment threat.

Advocate Matt Needham Published in TownHall

Young Voices Advocate Matt Needham was published today by TownHall writing about civil asset forfeiture:

These arbitrary seizures of private property must be stopped. Civil forfeiture as it exists today has no place in the American legal system, where citizens are innocent until proven guilty and granted due process to prove their innocence. People subject to civil forfeiture are powerless against law enforcement agencies who gain from these takings. Until civil forfeiture is abolished or radically reformed, more innocent Americans will face nightmares similar to that of Terry Dehko and Sandy Thomas.
