About this Event
In the past year, border law and policy has seen whiplash-inducing ups and downs. Out of the gate, the incoming Biden administration made good on certain of its campaign promises in the area of immigration but deferred on others. Later, federal courts dealt severe blows to progress, reversing attempts to restore protections dismantled by the prior administration. Throughout, vulnerable immigrants amassed at our southern border in record numbers. This panel will discuss the current situation at the border from a humanitarian, legal, and Christian perspective.
