Immigration remains a divisive political and constitutional topic, with comprehensive reform legislation passed in the Senate but stalled in the House of Representatives. Joseph Berger, longtime reporter and editor for The New York Times and author of two books on immigration, moderates this timely conversation featuring Tamar Jacoby, president and CEO of ImmigrationWorks USA, and Mae Ngai, the Lung Family Professor of Asian American Studies and Professor of History at Columbia University.

Light reception immediately to follow.

This program is presented in partnership with University of Pennsylvania’s Jewish Studies Program and Social Science Policy Forum, co-sponsored by the National Constitution Center, and supported by the Arlene and Stanley Ginsburg Family Foundation.
