Life Long Learning Program-International Aspects of U.S. Immigration and Refugee Policy
This course will address current trends and debates in immigration and refugee migration in the United States. We will consider the current strains and issues in U.S. immigration law and administration, proposals for comprehensive immigration reform and border control and management, and also recent challenges to refugee resettlement in the US and New York. U.S. migration policy and issues will be placed within the context of the United Nations Global Compact on Safe, Regular and Orderly Migration which will be considered by the UN General Assembly in December 2018 in Marrakech.
