“Border Wars: Inside Trump’s Assault on Immigration”

Since his election in 2016, President Trump has consistently pursued immigration reform through non-traditional means. Through executive order, President Trump has authorized the expansion of immigration detention centers, limited access to asylum for immigrants, and attempted to construct the famed border wall. Additionally, through the travel ban and family separation, President Trump has acted on his key campaign promise of restricting immigration.

Please join us as the IOP welcomes New York Times Washington reporters Julie Hirschfeld Davis and Michael D. Shear for a behind-the-scenes look at how the White House created and implemented these policies, as detailed in their book, Border Wars: Inside Trump’s Assault on Immigration.

Book sales and signing to follow.
