The Trump Administration made headlines this summer with new “zero tolerance” immigration policies, resulting in the detention of thousands of adults and over 3,000 children, many who were refugees fleeing violence and persecution in Central America. Join the Kroc Institute for a discussion of U.S. immigration policies from legal, moral, psychological and policy perspectives. 

A complimentary lunch will be served following the panel discussion. This event is free and open to the public. 

This event is co-sponsored by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies
