Description

Immigration, particularly at the U.S. Southwest border, has been front-page news for the last four years, and has drawn national attention again this year. Julia Gelatt will explore how the characteristics and pathways that immigrants have been taking to the United States have shifted in recent years, the policies and other factors that have shaped these changes, and the options before the country for harnessing immigration as a unique asset.
