Institute for Immigration Research

U.S. Immigration Discourse and its Effect on Northern Virginia Non Hispanic/Latino Populations

Commerce Building II, 3006
August 14, 2014, 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM

With the deadlock on immigration reform from Congress, and current immigration policy and news directed towards the border crisis, how do immigrant groups that do not identify as Hispanic/Latino react to the current discourse on immigration in the United States? How does this current focus affect immigrants in the area?

This presentation is by Sarmat Chowdhury, a junior at George Mason University pursuing a B.A. in Government and International Politics with a second B.A. in Conflict Analysis and Resolution.

This event is sponsored by the Institute for Immigration Research (IIR) and is part of the IIR Spotlight on Immigration Summer Series. Set on a monthly schedule starting in June and ending in August of 2014, the series will host a variety of events from movie showings to student/community-centered presentations on the issues at hand.

This event will take place at the IIR office building 4087 University Drive, Fairfax VA 22030.
