THIS EVENT WILL BE LIVE-STREAMED

President Trump’s hard-line rhetoric, from “Build the Wall” to his call for a ban on Muslims entering the country, created a highly charged atmosphere. WNYC’s Brian Lehrer hosts a panel of experts with diverse viewpoints on what US immigration policy should be and how it will affect undocumented workers and the economy.

PANELISTS:

Nancy Foner (Hunter College, Graduate Center), sociologist and author many books, including From Ellis Island to JFK: New York's Two Great Waves of Immigration and Strangers No More: Immigration and the Challenges of Integration in North America and Western Europe.

T. Alexander Aleinikoff, former United Nations deputy high commissioner for refugees (2010-15); author of Semblances of Sovereignty: The Constitution, the State, and American Citizenship; and university professor at the New School’s Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility.

Muzaffar Chishti, director of the Migration Policy Institute’s office at NYU School of Law; former director of the Immigration Project of the Union of Needletrades, Industrial & Textile Employees (UNITE); and board member of the National Immigration Law Center.

Douglas S. Massey, professor at Princeton University; coauthor of American Apartheid; Beyond Smoke and Mirrors: Mexican Immigration in an Era of Economic Integration; and Brokered Boundaries: Constructing Immigrant Identity in Anti-Immigrant Times, among many books.
