SymBozium is a forum for civil discourse presented by the Bozeman Public Library. At this divisive time in our world the need to consider and understand diverse perspectives is critical, especially within our community. This free participatory event series will feature current topics and keynote speakers representing varied points of view. Join us for principled, productive, and respectful conversations. Let’s discuss.
DACA, migrant caravans, undocumented workers, merit-based immigration. Few issues are more divisive in the United States today than immigration reform. Even though key businesses and industries – some right here in Montana – depend upon an immigrant workforce to be successful, opponents of immigration hold that our economy suffers when legal and non-legal individuals make the United States their home. How does one cut through all the partisan “noise” to understand how immigration impacts our economic well-being? Is immigration a boon or a bust for our economy? What are the myths, and what are the facts? Listen to and consider various viewpoints and offer your questions to our panelists in a follow-up question and answer session.
