The United States of America has long touted itself as the land of immigrants, and is demographically more diverse than at any time in our nation’s history. Yet the source and substance of immigration have been topics of continuous debate. How do domestic conditions, regional competition, geopolitics, and foreign policy affect immigration today? Who can become an American citizen and who cannot? How does a nation founded by immigrants, direct access to the U.S. for immigrants today? How do immigrants impact America’s social and economic vitality? Join us for a Frank Talk to ponder the question, what does it mean to be an American.
