 "Immigration in America: How Do We Fix a System in Crisis?", the third in a series of National Issues Forums, will take place on March 27, 2012. The forum will provide a vehicle for students, other members of the Suffolk community and the general public to participate in “democratic dialogue.” Participants will weigh the pros and cons of three policy options to find a shared understanding of the immigration issue and common ground for action, with an emphasis on getting past partisan rhetoric.

The National Issue Forums is a nonpartisan, nationwide network of locally sponsored public forums for the consideration of public policy issues. The small sessions of 20 to 30 participants are led by moderators, and the National Issue Forums provides a framework for the discussion as well as videos and printed discussion guides for participants.

Sponsored by the Moakley Archive and Institute, the Government Department, the S.O.U.L.S. Community Service Center, and the College Republicans (SuffolkGOP). The program was sponsored through a partnership with the Association of Centers for the Study of Congress and the Kettering Foundation.
