A Crisis of Conscience: What Do We Owe Immigrant Youth and Families?

Sponsored by the Fordham Center on Religion and Culture and the Fordham Center for Ethics Education

As thousands of unaccompanied children stream into the United States and thousands more remain behind while their parents are deported, Americans remain sharply divided about what constitutes a just policy toward immigrant youth and families.

How do we balance the best interests of children and parents against U.S. economic aspirations and a sharply divided electorate?

Speakers include:

Ken Salazar, former U.S. Senator from Colorado, Democrat, and 50th U.S. Secretary of the Interior

Sarah Burr, former Assistant Chief Immigration Judge, U.S. Department of Justice

Gabriel Salguero, President, National Latino Evangelical Coalition

David Ushery, journalist and host of NBC’s The Debrief with David Ushery

The event begins at 6 p.m.  |     Free and open to the public |   RSVP: or 212-636-7347
