Immigration in 2020: A Civil Talk About The Biggest Controversy
Immigration is perhaps the most polarizing issue in our current political climate, and yet there are several policy proposals that have widespread support — what's apparently lacking is the political will to bring about reform. WNYC immigration reporters Matt Katz and Beth Fertig take you beyond the soundbites and lean on historical perspective, lived experience and experts on different sides to talk over achievable solutions to this controversial issue. Director of the Migration Policy Institute Muzaffar Chishti, Senior Policy Adviser Casey Christine Higgins, New York Law School Professor Lenni Benson and others will discuss DACA and the Dreamers, farm workers and seasonal visas, America's refugee quotas and more. This is free and open to all. Audience will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis and an RSVP does not guarantee your admission. If capacity is reached at any given time, we will maintain a line outside our doors and follow a one-in, one-out policy. We recommend arriving early to better secure entry to the venue.
