The Deportation Machine: America's Long History of Expelling Immigrants

This is a past event.

Join us as we host Cultural Lens: Film & Speaker Series, featuring Dr. Adam Goodman. 

In the past few years, we have witnessed constant headlines about deportations, detention camps, and border walls drive urgent debates about immigration and what it means to be an American in the twenty-first century. Join us as we invite professor and author, Dr. Adam Goodman to discuss his latest book, The Deportation Machine and troubling history of the US government’s systematic efforts to terrorize and expel immigrants over the past 140 years and the innovative strategies people have adopted to fight against the machine and redefine belonging in ways that transcend citizenship.

The event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
