Securing the Borders and Stopping Terrorism: A Constitutional Framework
Dr. T.J. Davis, Arizona State University, School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies
Protecting its people is among the first priorities of any government. The Constitution’s Bill of Rights provides both for protection of the people, but also protects against undue intrusion by the government. How should the U.S. Constitution’s system of checks and balances operate in securing U.S. borders and stopping terrorism? Who poses a danger to U.S. security and safety, and what do we do about it? What public policies can be implemented to fulfill the government’s competing duties to protect people, and simultaneously respect civil liberties? Join us for a Frank Talk examining national security and civil liberties at the border.
