Recording on campus,‘New president, new policies: California, immigration and the shifting American Dream’ will explore the changing political climate through a range of perspectives
REDLANDS, California (Feb. 2, 2017)— In a string of executive orders just days into his presidency, Donald Trump set in motion the suspension of refugee admission to the United States for 120 days, a ban on Syrian refugees indefinitely and severe restrictions on immigration from seven predominantly Muslim nations. President Trump also approved the building of a wall between the United States and Mexico and the defunding of sanctuary cities.
What does all of this mean for California, home to the largest immigrant population in the country? How will the changes impact policing? The undocumented? The state's many Muslim communities? The economy?
The community is invited to attend at 7 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 9, 2017, when Take Two's A Martinez and Dorian Merina travel to the University of Redlands to explore these changes through a range of perspectives, including scheduled guests:
o Steve Wuhs, assistant provost for internationalization at the University of Redlands
o Jarrod Burguan, chief, San Bernardino Police Department and University of Redlands alumnus
o Edina Lekovic, Muslim Public Affairs Council
o Niels Frenzen, clinical professor of law and director of the Immigration Clinic at USC’s Gould School of Law
o The live video stream will be embedded on the event page. KPCC's In Person Facebook will also stream live.
This event is free and open to the public. Reservations are required and can be made online.
