How Can We Solve the Border Crisis?



What can be done to alleviate the chaos and human suffering at the U.S.-Mexico border? Without comprehensive immigration reform by Congress, what actions can the Biden administration take to create safe and legal pathways for asylum seekers? A panel of experts discusses creative solutions to America’s immigration crisis, and how to end the past decade’s debacle at the southern border.

Fernanda Santos — media leader and professor at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism — moderates the conversation, featuring Elizabeth F. Cohen, Maxwell Professor of United States Citizenship at Boston University, and author of Illegal: How America’s Lawless Immigration Regime Threatens Us All; Julia Preston, contributing writer on immigration for The Marshall Project, co-author of Opening Mexico: The Making of a Democracy, and longtime former journalist at The New York Times; Cinthya Santos-Briones, a visual artist, photographer, educator, and cultural organizer, who is a faculty member at CUNY’s Newmark School of Journalism; and Van Tran, associate professor of sociology and international migration studies at the CUNY Graduate Center.

Presented with the Center for Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino Studies (CLACLS). Part of the Promise and Perils of Democracy Project funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
