At "Debates of the Century" event, a lively exchange on Immigration

The second installment of "Debates at the Century @ NYU Wagner" featured, on March 29, a lively exchange of viewpoints on U.S. immigration policies between David Frum, a senior editor at The Atlantic, and Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center. The pair, who intensely debated the propostion "America Should Embrace the Undocumented and Expand Immigration," were kept in line by moderator Jonathan Alter, an award-winning reporter, television news analyst, and author.

The event was cosponsored by Wagner and the Century Foundation, and included remarks from Wagner Dean Sherry Glied and Foundation President Mark Zuckerman, as well as an audience Q&A.

You can watch the livestream video of the debate.

Meanwhile, mark your calendars for the final debate of Spring 2016 (it's Tuesday, April 26, at 6 p.m) and return here for details. The debate proposition will be: "Government should have lawful access to any encrypted message or device."
