We do not have to travel far and wide to obscure countries on another conti-nent to witness serious border issues, whether related to those trying to leave, or those intent on ‘getting in’. Our southern border is experiencing an avalanche of migrants numbering thousands a day attempting to illegally ‘get in’. U.S. authori-ties stopped migrants 2.8 million times at our southern border in the 12 months ending last October. The majority are current citizens of failing central or South American countries that are either in political or economic distress.

Dr. Daniel Reichman, our guest speaker, is a PhD graduate of Cornell University and an Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Rochester. He is a specialist in contemporary Latin America and has conducted anthropologi-cal research in central and South America. He is the author of two books dealing with prevalent issues in South and central America, writes for popular media out-lets, and has spoken on immigration policy at the White House, United Nations, and the Interamerican Development Bank. He will delve into the many reasons why our southern border is being overrun with those ‘who want to get in’.
