The crisis on the Southern border continues to get worse. With a record number of aliens being apprehended and crossing the border, fentanyl and other illegal drugs pouring into the country, and the current administration’s seeming lack of interest in rectifying the situation it created, many are wondering what, if anything, can be done.
Given the federal government’s abdication of its duty to protect the nation’s sovereignty over its own borders, what actions can states take to meaningfully stem the tide of illegal immigration and its consequences? Join us for an in-depth discussion of these issues featuring former Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf; former Acting Deputy Secretary at DHS and former Attorney General of Virginia Ken Cuccinelli; and Texas Deputy Attorney General Aaron Reitz, as they discuss what can be done to solve this crisis in an event moderated by Senior Legal Fellow Hans von Spakovsky.
