Immigration in a Post-9/11 America

For the past eight years in various ways, our country has been feeling the consequences of September 11, including the loss of nearly 3,000 lives. Those events can sometimes seem like a remote event. We explore an issue profoundly affected by 9/11: immigration. How has the immigration process changed in America since September 11? Where is immigration policy – and politics – headed now? Our panel takes your questions:

Rob Paral—Principal of Rob Paral and Associates and a fellow with the American Immigration Law Foundation in Washington D.C.
Louise Cainkar—Sociologist and senior research fellow at the University of Chicago's Great Cities Institute
