The New Yorker Thanksgiving cover takes on immigration

 |  NCR Today

The Huffington Post has a compelling story on the New Yorker's Thanksgiving cover story:

"No stranger to controversial cover art, The New Yorker Thanksgiving issue depicts a gaggle of pilgrims scampering under a starry sky.

"A woman crawls under a barbed-wire fence that could be the U.S.-Mexico border. Two men, sweat dripping from their hats, sprint across the barren landscape.

"The illustration is entitled 'Promised Land.'

"'American politics tend to be very practical and open-minded, so why would you consider throwing them out?' Cover artist Christoph Niemann told Huffington Post LatinoVoices. 'The debate should be about how can a country benefit from immigration. America depends on immigration. The discussion will be more valuable if it is focused on benefits.'"
