Immigration Then and Now: Exploring The Making of Undocumented Immigrants

Featured Speaker: Ariela Schachter, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Sociology, Department of Sociology, Washington University in St. Louis

Throughout the history of the United States, federal laws and policies have been used to determine who should be allowed to immigrate to the U.S. and who should be excluded. Sociologist, Ariela Schachter, explores how historical and contemporary policies have contributed to current debates and understandings of undocumented immigration.

Immigration Then and Now is a Perspectives on Science and History Series seminar of The Academy of Science – St. Louis and the Missouri History Museum presented in conjunction with the History Museum exhibition, Trails West, on display at the Museum through February 2, 2020.
