Understanding the Immigration Debate: Lecture by George Clack

Date/Time:
Mon. Feb 26, 2018 10:30am - 11:30am
Location:
Monteabaro Recital Hall
Details:
George Clack is a spokesperson for the Howard County chapter of the Indivisible Action Team on Immigration. This one-hour event will focus on current issues such as:
  • What the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) is and how it operates;
  • Who “refugees” are and the dimensions of the current refugee crisis;
  • What the term “sanctuary” means and how this concept has been misunderstood;
  • How the Trump administration has changed U.S. government policies on undocumented immigrants and refugees;
  • What CB-9, the sanctuary bill passed by the Howard County Council but vetoed by the County Executive, would have done for immigrants;
  • The fate of the Maryland Trust Act in the state legislature;
  • The reasons why voters will continue to see this type of legislation in the future.
This will be an interactive session, with the opportunity to ask questions.
Clack, who currently teaches literature and film at Howard Community College and Johns Hopkins University, is a former head of the U.S. State Department’s Publications Office.
