U.S. immigration policy is dominating the headlines and promises to be one of the top controversial issues of the 2020 election. The upcoming panel brings together an array of prominent local immigration scholars for a moderated conversation about why we can't seem to resolve the immigration issue, why it is such a divisive topic, and what citizens should know about immigration in order to be informed voters. The panel includes experts on immigration enforcement, public opinion on immigration, and integration of immigrants into local communities. The event will include time for questions from audience members.

This event is part of the Social Science Matters series.
