Dan Berger, a nationally known immigration lawyer, and Kenneth Reade, UMASS International students & faculty advisor, will give a joint presentation that surveys U.S. immigration history and trends. They will discuss how the current administration’s decisions have affected priorities and enforcement and the impact these changes are having in Western Massachusetts—generally and from the point of view of higher education.
