I am gearing up for some high skill immigration work. A media interview (!!!!) on Thursday and a briefing paper with my regular co-authors. This sort of treatment of sane researchers is disheartening.
There are a lot of DC policy wonk types (although Teitelbaum isn't in DC anymore) that feel a sense of entitlement and are obnoxious to be around. Teitelbaum is nothing of the sort, he's very focused on getting to the truth of the matter, and he's anything but a political operative. He's one of those guys that's great to be around as a young researcher because he takes you seriously, is interested in what you have to say, and treats you like you're competent enough to understand what he has to say.
