Event Description

Build the Wall. Dreamers. Open the boards. Undocumented. Path to citizenship. DACA. Illegals. On and on the wheel turns. Immigration is undoubtedly one of the most contested issues in not only American politics, but global politics. All countries have an obligation to their citizens to keep them safe from the things that occur outside of their borders. However, do these countries, and the United States in particular, have an obligation to be a city on the hill for those seeking a better life? The issue of immigration are not new, though they seem as tense as ever. The United States has passed numerous laws excluding certain classes of people from entry. However, the United States has also passed many laws seeking to be a steward for the less fortunate in time of crisis. The United States shift in immigration policy is much like all other policy, a swing of the pendulum. Come join ACS for a conversation about which direction the pendulum should swing on many aspects of immigration. Should there be standard on the people we admit? Should we build extensive walls across our borders? Should people already in America be provided a path to citizenship? We look forward to exploring these questions and many more at our sixth and final Where's the Nuance discussion of the semester.
