The Myths and Realities of U.S. Immigration Policy

From the controversy over President Trump’s proposed border wall… to the dispute over DACA… to court challenges of immigration quotas…  U.S. immigration policy has been at the forefront of political debate.

It is, to say the least, a complicated issue.  To help us sort out the realities from the myths, UNC Asheville Political Science Prof. Mark Gibney will be our speaker at LAF’s May 23rd Critical Issues event.

Dr. Gibney is the Belk Distinguished Professor at UNCA where he teaches classes on immigration and refugee law and policy.

He is an internationally recognized expert on human rights and immigration matters who has authored numerous books and articles on those and other subjects.

We hope you can join us for this important event.
