Lecture: A Nation of Immigrants: The Past, Present and Future of Immigration Law
April 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The United States is among the most pluralistic societies in the world. Indispensable to this accomplishment was formulating an immigration policy that welcomed men and women of different nationalities and faiths to this country with the goal of creating a system based on family reunification and labor force needs. Join us for this timely talk where Dr. Enriquez explores how immigration past and present helps us understand its future.
