Immigration Politics

The United States has had a contentious relationship with immigration almost from the beginning despite our being a nation of immigrants. And immigration is a theme in this year’s election, polls tell us it is the second most important issue to voters behind dissatisfaction with government. As the face of America changes, we look at immigration politics and what could change – or not – after November.

Queens University of Charlotte is hosting "Immigration Policy and Politics: Understanding the Implications of the 2016 Elections for Immigration Reform" Thursday, April 21, 5:30-7:00 p.m. at Duke Energy Auditorium, Rogers Hall on the Queens campus. Details here.
