Against the New Nativism

Teach-In on Migration and Borders
Tuesday, November 13, 2018
5:00-7:00 PM
1014 Tisch Hall Map
The U.S. government is currently checking off items on the wish list of a new nativist movement--from an entry ban on people from majority-Muslim countries to mass arrests and deportations, from major reductions in refugee admissions to new rules designed to restrict working people's access to legal status. These rapid changes to immigration policy reflect a long history of efforts, in the United States and around the world, to constrain the movement of people across borders. As elected officials and news outlets cite nativist "think-tanks" and proclaim an immigration "crisis," this teach-in is an opportunity to participate in a conversation about what is happening locally and globally and how people are organizing in response.
