Core to the debate over immigration reform in the U.S. is how to handle refugees, from Ukraine, from Afghanistan, and from countries in Central America. This free webinar will give journalists a more nuanced understanding of immigration in the U.S. in order to analyze current policy, report on reform efforts in a deeply divided Congress and understand the impact of legislation on local communities in the U.S. — not to mention those fleeing violence and persecution abroad.
