Presented by Ethical Society of Boston at Spiegel Auditorium
December 19, 2010
Presented by the Ethical Society of Boston: Steve Schnapp, Snior Education Cordinator, United for a Fair Economy. There is a growing clamor about our "immigration problem? ?But what are the facts about immigration? What is pushing and pulling workers to leave their homeland and families and make dangerous border crossings? Who benefits from rules that allow entrance by some workers and criminalize others? What do foreign-born and domestic workers have in common? How can we evaluate proposed immigration "reforms"? This presentation provides information, analysis and strategies for action to close the political and social divides that pit workers and communities against each other.
