Audience: Alumni, Current Student, Faculty, Prospective Student, Staff
In recent weeks, the U.S. has experienced an increase of migrants crossing the southern border, with total border crossings on pace to hit a two-decade high. The Biden administration is ramping up its diplomatic efforts and racing to find more space to shelter children as it tries to tackle these issues made even more complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic without turning to the aggressive deterrence strategies of previous administrations. Once across the border, undocumented workers also experience myriad challenges including the denial of wages or employee benefits rightfully owed despite their undocumented status. Join Dean Fritz Mayer for a conversation with Korbel School Associate Professor, Rebecca Galemba, as we explore the challenges facing migration policy, border security and wage theft of undocumented workers, including those here in Colorado.
