US Immigration Policy in 2018: Evolving Notions of Citizenship
Since 2017, the Trump Administration has drastically limited access to American citizenship, be it for refugees seeking to escape violence and start a new life in the United States or young undocumented immigrants brought to this county as children. Julie Rodríguez, state director and senior advisor to U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris, will survey U.S. immigration policy in 2018 and its impact on notions of citizenship. A former senior public engagement official to President Obama, Rodríguez will also address recent efforts to solve the immigration crisis and conclude with current efforts to resist and organize against the Trump Administration’s deportation force. This event is co-presented by the Critical Issues in America Series.
