In times such as now, immigration policy is a topic of controversial and emotional discussion. The key in having educational, progressive, and prosperous conversations is understanding the theoretical foundations behind the argument that a person stands for or believes in. Having factual evidence to support ideas on concepts such as: the opportunities that immigrants bring to a country, what the international rules actually are that govern the entry and exit of people from one country to another, and the causes, trends, and consequences of international immigration.

One of the key strategies used by the Suarez-Orozcos, was the use of exemplification.
Communicatively competent cross-cultural leaders are able to establish interpersonal relationships with foreign nationals through effective exchanges of verbal and non-verbal forms of communication behaviors. Muchiri and Cooksey (20011), argued that understanding the theoretical relationships between the national cultures and leaders’ choices of effective communication strategies is necessary for effective exchanges and to generate a clear prediction about the role of effective leadership in a variety of contexts across cultures.
