(Discussion Group #5) Beyond the Border: U.S.-Mexico Relations

July 11, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

“Security, Immigration, Trade and the Border: Will Constructing a ‘Big A$$ Wall’ Solve America’s Issues with Mexico?”

Guest: Alan Bersin

This session will provide deeper understanding of key issues around border security, trade and immigration. Is the proposed wall realistic and would it achieve what its proponents suggest? Are security, immigration and trade mutually exclusive or can we have all three? In this discussion, Alan Bersin, former Assistant Secretary for International Affairs, brings his vast federal experience to a discussion about the intersection of security, immigration and trade. Having served in the Obama and the Clinton Administrations, Bersin has learned a great deal about what works and what doesn’t and what might be on the horizon.

About Summer 2017 Discussion Groups: For many, the U.S.-Mexico border presents a problem, for others, an economic opportunity. An expert in cross-border economic development, Christina Luhn will lead a summer discussion group series exploring the relationship between the U.S. and Mexico with a focus on border security, immigration and trade.
