Roundtable: “Controlling the Border?: Labor, Lives, and Policy”

Fri, March 4, 2016 | SRH 3.122

3:30 PM5:00 PM

Conflicts about immigration policy and priorities have assumed center stage in political debates about national identity and security for the past decade.  Deeply rooted differences have blocked much needed reforms, thereby aggravating long-standing economic and social problems.  This roundtable brings together an interdisciplinary group of migration and policy scholars to explore the history and future projections for this central facet of American life.
