Debate on U.S. Immigration Policy at Hopkins

The Johns Hopkins University Diversity Leadership Council and the Hewlitt Foundation will present a debate on immigration titled Who Belongs in the USA? At the Crossroads: A Look at the New Millennium, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 20, in 272 Bloomberg Center on the university s Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St., in Baltimore. The debate will feature two of the country s most vocal and pre-eminent figures in the field of immigration: Mark Krikiran, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, and Frank Sharry, executive director of the National Immigration Forum, both based in Washington, D.C.

The Center for Immigration Studies is a non-profit organization founded in 1985. It is a think tank devoted exclusively to research and policy analysis of the economic, social, demographic, fiscal, and other impacts of immigration on the United States. It advocates reforms in immigration policies.

The purpose of The National Immigration Forum is to embrace and uphold America's tradition as a nation of immigrants. The forum advocates public policies that welcome immigrants and refugees and that it considers fair and supportive to newcomers in our country.

For information about the event, call the Hopkins Office of International Student and Scholar Services at 410-516-1013.
