OSHER @ Dartmouth Summer Series: " Our Divided Country"
Speaker: Steve Yale-Loehr
Professor of Immigration Law Practice, Cornell Law School
Immigration is at the forefront of U.S. politics. President Trump has called for building walls, imposing bans on Muslim immigrants, restricting legal immigration, and imperiling DACA. Does immigration help or hurt America? Stephen Yale-Loehr, professor of immigration law practice at Cornell Law School, will explain why our current immigration system doesn't work and what you can do to help fix it.
Steve Yale-Loehr has practiced immigration law for 35 years and is currently Professor of Immigration Law Practice at Cornell Law School. Prior to that he practiced immigration law for a firm in DC and was managing editor of two prestigious immigration law publications. Steve is the author of many books on core immigration issues, including Green Card Stories and America's Challenge: Domestic Security, Civil Liberties, and National Unity After September 11. He is listed in the International Who's Who of Immigration Lawyers as "one of the best immigration lawyers in the world." He often testifies before Congress on immigration issues and is a frequent analyst and contributor on NPR, NYT, WSJ, CNN, Fortune, and the Financial Times.
It has been said that, "a house divided against itself cannot stand" (Abraham Lincoln, 1858). Yet the U.S. finds itself increasingly fractured along partisan lines. These growing divides are supercharged today by instant Internet and social media communications, 24/7 cable news, blatantly partisan media which attract and inflame like-minded viewers, body cams, viral smartphone videos, and the denigration of some American traditions.
Each of the six prominent speakers will frame the key issues of the series, probe challenges to finding common ground, and provide insights on how to most constructively unite America to solve them.
