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

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.
