Borders, Walls, and Immigration
September 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Immigration is one of the most divisive issues facing our country and our state. Who comes in and out of the U.S., and how? Do current immigration laws effectively promote national security and economic prosperity, without compromising human and civil rights? In Arizona border security and immigration policies are more than media and political talking points. They shape our everyday lives, and the land and people that live here in complex ways. Join us for an interesting FRANK Talk on immigration and borders.
