Kim Crockett will present “How U.S. Immigration Policy Undermines Confidence in Self-Governance in the United States and Beyond.”
The failure of Congress to update immigration policies, and the intervention of federal judges issuing national injunctions against the Trump administration’s attempt to control who enters the country, has resulted in a humanitarian crisis at the U.S. border. The world has watched as waves of migrants attempt to disappear into the nation before the administration can fully use its executive authority to address illegal, mass migration and the abuse of the asylum system. Meanwhile, in Minnesota, the refugee resettlement program, run by the State Department, has changed the political, demographic and cultural landscape forever. All of these trends come at a time when America’s civic culture is in deep crisis.
