Experts Discuss Solutions to Address the Situation at the Southern Border

On March 23, the Council on National Security and Immigration and the National Immigration Forum convened a roundtable of experts to discuss solutions to the situation at the southern border. The roundtable sought to cut through the political rhetoric and begin a conversation about pragmatic solutions which Congress and the administration can take that would respond to the humanitarian crisis, protect national security, and promote orderly, secure, and compassionate processing at the border.
