Faith and Border Ethics: Immigration and Human Dignity in Trump's America
America, commonly touted as a nation of immigrants, was quickly defined by her borders: oceanic and political borders that were crossed in order to found her, and the national borders which rapidly expanded, across peoples and land, in order to define her.
Professors Kristin Heyer, Daniel Kanstroom, Hosffman Ospino, and Peter Skerry will discuss the intersections between theology, immigration legislation, and American politics. Specifically, panelists will ask themselves, "As people interested in the role of religion in public life, can we define an ethics of borders?"
