Description

After September 11, 2001, the United States implemented sweeping changes in its immigration policies in an effort to prevent future terrorist attacks on American soil. Some of these immigration policy changes have enhanced US national security, while others, ironically, have undermined it. What key post-9/11 changes in immigration policy have been effective, and which ones have not? How should we gauge the effectiveness of national-security related immigration policies? What future changes to US immigration policies will best serve US national security?

About the Lecturer: Margaret Stock is an attorney admitted in Alaska; a Lieutenant Colonel in the Military Police Corps, US Army Reserve; and an Associate Professor assigned to the Department of Social Sciences, US Military Academy, West Point, New York.
