Department to Host Immigration Discussion Oct. 23

Immigration is an issue that has drawn more heat than light. Please join us at 6 p.m. Oct. 23 in the BLUU Auditorium for “The Past and Future of Immigration,” which will include a panel discussion and short film screening on the topic of immigration reform. The Department of Journalism at the Bob Schieffer College of Communication is collaborating with Rice University’s Baker Institute Mexico Center and The Rational Middle to provide historical context, personal and policy perspectives, and business sector input on the topic in an effort to educate the general public and help shape policy solutions. A screening of the films, “The Immigrant’s Promise” and “DACA and the American Dream,” will be followed by a discussion of the outlook on immigration featuring Dr. Melita Garza, TCU associate professor of journalism; Adam Lampert, CEO of Manchester Place Care Homes and Cambridge Caregivers; Dr. Tony Payan, director of the Baker Institute’s Center for the United States and Mexico; and Dianne Solis, staff writer for the Dallas Morning News. Dr. Uche Onyebadi, associate professor and chair of journalism at TCU, will moderate the panel discussion and will welcome questions from the audience. TCU’s Comparative Race & Ethnic Studies is a sponsor of this event.
