Immigrants are a cornerstone of America. Yet immigration remains a contentious political debate. Alex Nowrasteh, the director of immigration studies at the Cato Institute, will discuss the integration of immigrants and their children into America’s economy and society. He will explore why they play a crucial role in the American dream and examine common arguments against expanded immigration.
This event is open to the public.
