On September 10, 2001, the United States was the most open country in the world. But since the 9/11 attacks, the nation has been shutting its doors.

In The Closing of the American Border, Edward Alden goes behind the scenes to tell the story of the Bush administration's struggle to balance security and openness in the wake of the worst attack on U.S. soil.

The goal was to build new lines of defense that could keep out terrorists without stifling the flow of people and ideas from abroad that have helped to build the world's most dynamic economy. But instead, the government created an obstacle course that has made it vastly harder for people from across the world to come to the U.S., hurting America's image abroad and damaging its economic prospects at home.

    " The history of immigration in the US and the changes in how immigrants and visitors are viewed and processed since 9/11. Huge impacts on education and employment due to visa issues. Another thing that Obama needs to fix. "

    " Now that I work at DHS, it was interesting to read the history of the department. Alden makes a pretty strong argument that the American reaction to curtailing immigration post 9/11 is the wrong decision. A bit repetitive and long-winded in places but still a good read. "
