The Ethics of Immigration: Is U.S. Policy Immoral?

No issue has been more divisive in 2018 than immigration. As deportations have risen, DACA threatened and children separated from their parents in families detained for unlawful entry, Americans wrestle with fundamental questions like: Whom shall we welcome as residents in the United States? What are our moral responsibilities to refugees? How do we reconcile immigrant rights with the rights of long-term residents? If our immigration system is broken, what would more ethical policies look like? Come hear a discussion about these and other ethical issues raised by U.S. admissions and deportation policies today.

Speakers:

Ana Levy-Lyons, Senior Minister, First Unitarian Congregational Society, Brooklyn; Author, No Other Gods: The Politics of the Ten Commandments (2018)

Kathleen Wallace, Chair, Department of Philosophy, Hofstra University

Paula Chirinos, DACA recipient; Center for Civic Engagement Student Fellow

Presented by the Labor Studies Program in collaboration with the Center for Civic Engagement for the Day of Dialogue.
