A Nation of Immigrants
10:45 am - 11:30 am
Sunday, October 31, 2021

Authors Sarah Coleman and Ruth Milkman come together to discuss the American policy and attitudes toward immigrant US residents in a time of resurgent nativist sentiment. Coleman’s The Walls Within is a compelling history of immigrants’ rights since 1965, and in Immigration Matters Milkman has edited a volume of expert voices that, together, offer a fresh vision of a humane immigration policy that works for today.
