Forum: Understanding the Real Situation at Our Southern Border

Queens Library, Forest Hills - Thursday, June 20, 2019, 6-7:30pm

With so much contradictory information about immigration issues, it’s hard to know what’s really going on. Please join us as Nara Milanich, History Professor at Barnard College/Columbia University, breaks it down and separates truth from hype. Bringing first-hand knowledge from a recent visit to a border detention center with her undergraduate students, she will address the following topics and answer your questions:

  • The current immigration situation at the U.S./Mexican border.

  • The reasons people are so desperate to leave their countries.

  • The role the U.S. has played in these countries and what the U.S. can do to stabilize the situation in their home countries.

  • Our obligations to these asylum seekers, according to U.S. and international law.
