The Immigration Impasse

Socially dangerous views on immigration were once confined to the margins of political discourse.  Now, in the wake of refugee crises and terrorist attacks, these sentiments have become politically more acceptable, helping propel Donald Trump to the White House, influence the vote on Brexit and make Marine Le Pen popular in France.  Go Back to Where You Came From explains how we got here and why the extreme Right has grown stronger in countries that have historically been defenders of human rights and models of tolerance.  Hosted by The Commonwealth Club: $20 for non-members.Friday, October 6 at 12 PM - 2 PM
