This event has passed.

In recent years, the United States has seen a major shift in migrant flows as more families and children from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border claiming asylum. This change—from the young, Mexican men previously arriving in the greatest numbers—has overwhelmed our ill-equipped border systems and facilities and presented challenges to both the Obama and Trump administrations as well as our Mexican neighbors. Join our panel of experts from diverse perspectives to discuss the complex migration challenges facing Central America, Mexico, and the United States and potential policy solutions.
