This paper compares David Miller’s views on the political philosophy of immigration as expressed in his recent book Strangers in Our Midst with my own views, especially as expressed in my book The Ethics of Immigration. I try to show that contrary to what many people may assume, Miller and I agree on a great deal, and when we do disagree, the reasons for our differences are often either contingent or unclear.
