Door County Talks: Immigration Politics: Between Rights and Restrictions with Dr. Alise Coen
Saturday, January 18 @ 10:00 am
Presented in Partnership with Door County Civility Project
Tickets: Freewill Donations Encouraged
Date: Saturday, January 18, 2020 | Time: 10 a.m.
Debates over U.S. immigration policy have been shaped by a complex history characterized by tensions between migration restrictions and migrant rights. To understand ongoing policy shifts regarding immigration and asylum, it is important to engage with the evolution of both nativism and human rights advocacy. International law and evolving court interpretations have also played a crucial role in immigration politics, exemplified by recent discussions about the Flores Settlement Agreement and zero tolerance policies designed to deter undocumented migrants and asylum-seekers. Dr. Coen’s presentation aims to weave together these diverse and sometimes paradoxical historical forces to help shed light on current political realities.
