Webinar: Today, 11am - Central American Migrants, Obama’s Border/Immigration Enforcement Record

Please join NDN later this week for an online Webinar about the US-Mexican border, the Obama immigration and border enforcement record and the recent surge in migrants from Central America. We will be hosting two live Webinars, the first on Thursday at 3 PM and a second on Friday at 11 AM.  

On the heels of Vice President Biden's trip to Guatemala, many are wondering what conditions  caused a surge of people to show up at the U.S./Mexico border.  NDN  President Simon Rosenberg will offer his insight and provide a greater context to how our immigration system has changed in the Obama Era.  Simon will walk through a newly constructed powerpoint presentation, which reviews recent data about what is happening on the US Mexican border today and review true signs of progress of late in managing this complex system.  Simon will also review the recent surge at the border and discuss the best way to stem the tide. The briefing will be useful for anyone trying to learn more about the issue, whether they are writing in the media or anyone attempting to have a greater understanding of the policy options available. 

Please note that it will take a few moments for the software to install before the event begins, so plan accordingly. Webinar can be used on either a Mac or PC. If you have any issues, please contact ccantor@ndn.org. 

Each Webinar will last for about an hour. The first 30 minutes will be devoted to Simon's powerpoint presentation, followed by 30 minutes of Q &A:
