Title

Immigration Past, Present, Future

Description

We are a nation of immigrants and want to welcome outsiders, but what are the implications? And why is immigration such a tough issue? As a writer of science fiction, your host has written a novel (Xenogeneic: First Contact) about aliens pilgrims who seek to take over Earth. As research for this book he studied past migrations on Earth. Come share in a discussion of the history of immigrations and what it means for today and tomorrow.
