Immigration 2019: A Look Ahead

We're featuring a series this month called “2019: A Look Ahead” and continue with a look at immigration. The current government shutdown is linked to immigration - President Trump is demanding over $5 billion dollars to build a wall along the U.S. southern border with Mexico. There are also tens of thousands fleeing the violence in Central American countries asking for US asylum, questionable current border practices with family separations and child safety investigations, and the Dreamers, undocumented immigrants brought to the US as minors, who are still in limbo as lawmakers continue to argue their fate. Host Dan Loney talks with Sarah Paoletti, Director of the Transnational Legal Clinic at the University of Pennsylvania, and Stephen Yale-Loehr, Professor of Immigration Law Practice at Cornell University, to discuss how these tenuous situations may or may not resolve in the coming year on Knowledge@Wharton.
