Course Overview

In the news media, one commonly hears the criticism that the Biden administration has an Open Border policy and much “tougher” policies are required. How does that rhetoric square with fact that the US annually deports more than 300,000 people?  Do the migrants on the southern border pose an extraordinary threat? What is the situation on the border, the policy options and is a “Secure Border” even possible?  Was the Great Wall of China ever effective in keeping out the “Barbarians from the North?” Join us for an exploration of the history and struggle behind US Border Policy.
