Why Do We Limit Immigration?

Start Wednesday, September 03, 2014 7:00 PM

End Wednesday, September 03, 2014 8:00 PM

Whatever happened to "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free?" Why did America start restricting immigration? How did the restrictions come about? And what can that tell us about immigration policy today?

Dr. Zac Gochenour of Western Carolina University talked with Janet Neilson about these topics and more during our September 3, 2014 event. 

 

Check back soon for resources to learn:

  • About the history of America's immigration laws
  • Why restricted immigration is popular
  • How politicians think about immigration policy and why
