United States Immigration and Border Policy in 2019

According to Pew Research, more than 1 million immigrants arrive in the United States each year, with India, Mexico, China, and Cuba leading as top countries in 2017. Headlines on the immigration crisis flood our daily lives, through social media, press articles, and even presidential tweets. The issue has become more and more divisive crossing party and religious lines. But somewhere along the way, has the truth been skewed? Immigration experts explore the data and stories behind the headlines to better understand what is taking place in Latin American countries, at the US-Mexican border, and with individuals once they arrive in the United States.
