In today’s global political climate, there is no more divisive issue than immigration. It’s an issue that drives our policy debates, politics – and our elections.
As part of the University of Maryland’s “Year of Immigration” initiative, the Smith School and the Bipartisan Policy Center present “The Immigration Debate: The Search for Consensus.”
Registrants will participate in a survey prior to the event, to discover our collective thoughts and attitudes about immigration. At the event, BPC experts, Smith School faculty and other distinguished individuals in the field of immigration will lead a panel discussion that will examine the various facets and prevailing attitudes surrounding the debates. By the time we leave, we hope to come to a consensus!
Registration is free but is required to attend and participate in the survey.
