Migration, the U.S. – Mexico Border, and Covid-19

Panel Discussion

Migration, the U.S. – Mexico Border, and Covid-19

In a recent New York Times opinion piece titled “Trump Is Using the Pandemic to Flout Immigration Laws,” Lucas Guttentag and UC Berkeley’s Stefano M. Bertozzi argue that, “refugees and unaccompanied children are the targets of summary border expulsions.” Professor Bertozzi will be part of a panel of experts organized by CLAS to discuss the Covid-19 pandemic, recent draconian changes in U.S. immigration policies, and conditions in Mexico for migrants and asylum-seekers barred from entering or deported by the United States.
