With White Nationalism on the rise, increased militarization of the border, and inhumane practices justified by “America First,” our land of opportunity is now the land of nightmares for immigrants seeking a better life. Elizabeth F. Cohen, professor of political science at Syracuse University, confronts this new normal in her book Illegal: How America’s Lawless Immigration Regime Threatens Us All and shows how the rising tide of nationalism and unfettered policing of immigrants threaten citizen and non-citizen alike.

Venue: Brooklyn Historical Society

128 Pierrepont St. Map
