By Ben Hinshaw – On January 27, 2017, as President Trump signed his executive order to halt immigration from several Muslim-majority countries, ISS hosted a conference entitled "Documenting the Immigrant: U.S. Immigration Policy Past, Present, and Future." Welcoming speakers and panelists from an array of disciplines and fields, the event represented a timely opportunity to tackle a critical and controversial issue.
This one-day conference, hosted by ISS on January 27, 2017, brought scholars from multiple disciplines together with policy activists, journalists, and individuals connected to the legislative environment to explore U.S. immigration policy since 9/11 and address the implications for immigration policy of the Trump presidency.
