Upcoming Webinar: Understanding the Complexities of Border Security and its Impacts on Reaching a Bipartisan Compromise for Dreamers
Join us on Friday, June 9, 2023 at 12:00 PM ET/ 9:00 AM PT, for a Briefing on the Understanding the Complexities of Border Security and its Impacts on Reaching a Bipartisan Compromise for Dreamers. With the end of Title 42, implementation of new Administration policies, and passage of H.R. 2 (Secure the Border Act of 2023) in the House, the focus in D.C. and cities across the nation has shifted to the southern border, border enforcement, and the prospects for immigration reform. The purpose of this briefing is to provide higher education leaders and stakeholders with a nuanced exploration of the array of border issues – humanitarian crises for those seeking to come to the U.S., challenges facing border communities, the complexities of border security management and enforcement issues – and its implications for broader immigration policy reform, especially for reaching a bipartisan compromise on Dream legislation.
