America and the World: Flashpoints



Immigration: What is Our Policy?

Issues surrounding immigration are in the news everyday. To build a wall, or not to build a wall. The separation of children from their families at the border. In this discussion, we will look at the American immigration policy and compare it both to previous eras in American history but also to other trends in developing countries. Most importantly, we will discuss the impact of American immigration policy on the lives of immigrants, especially the children.
