Event description

Description

For centuries, a steady influx of people from other countries has helped make the United States a nation composed of immigrants. Today, many people are asking questions about the country’s immigration policies—important questions that we need to consider together. The concerns that underlie this issue are not confined to party affiliation, nor are they captured by labels like “conservative” or “liberal.”

The National Issues Forums Institute is inviting people around the U.S. to consider different ways to approach the issue of immigration, with the results presented to elected officials. This discussion is presented with the help of Consensus and the Kansas City Public Library. Seating is very limited and a reservation is required.

You’ll work in small groups with your fellow citizens to consider three options for handling immigration:

  • Option 1: Welcome Immigrants, Be a Beacon of Freedom.

  • Option 2: Enforce the Law, Be Fair to Those Who Follow the Rules.

  • Option 3: Slow Down and Rebuild Our Common Bonds.
