Distinguished Lecture: “The New Era of U.S. Immigration Policy” – Apr 14

The USC Retired Faculty Association and the USC Emeriti Center present

The New Era of U.S. Immigration Policy: Nativism, Closure and the Age of Trump”

Professor Roberto Suro

Professor of Journalism

Annenberg School for Communication

The new administration has already produced dramatic changes in both the rhetoric and substance of U.S. immigration policies with profound consequences for many thousands of people inside the United States and around the world.  Considering that demographic and economic trends were already producing diminished flows, we are likely seeing the end of an era that produced several decades of significant increases in foreign-born population.  In this talk, Professor Suro will discuss the impact of measures already taken by President Donald J. Trump and what lies ahead.

Friday, April 14, 2017

3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Doheny Memorial Library, Room 240

Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to attend.
There is no charge for this event.
