Immigration can provoke passionate discussion and debate, especially in this political climate. The decision to leave one’s home country and take a risk on another is a highly personal and difficult decision. Yet, the majority of Americans can trace their roots to an immigrant—from Europe, Asia, Latin America, Africa and other continents—who took that plunge to make a better life for themselves and future generations. That emotional decision, depending on when they came, often was the result of the vagaries of U.S. immigration and refugee policies. And that is true whether the immigrant came through legal channels or by over-staying their visa.
Come join two authors of recent books that focus on both the personal journey of an immigrant family (New York Times’ reporter, Jason DeParle, A Good Provider is One Who Leaves) and of a policy wonk who tells the history of the last time comprehensive immigration reform passed into law (Senior Cabinet Adviser for UnidosUS, Charles Kamasaki, Immigration Reform: The Corpse that Will Not Die).
