At a time when immigration is increasingly in the news, Cedarville University students are leading the way in promoting discussion on this important issue. That’s why on Monday, March 20, the university’s American Enterprise Institute (AEI) executive council will host a panel discussion addressing immigration.

Three Cedarville University faculty members from the School of Business Administration and Department of History and Government will discuss President Trump’s immigration plan and other issues surrounding immigration at 7 p.m. in the Dixon Ministry Center’s Recital Hall. Panelists include Dr. Bert Wheeler, Berry chair of economics; Dr. Marc Clauson, professor of history and law; and Dr. Tom Mach, professor of history and assistant vice president for academics.
The event is free of charge and open to the public. 

Junior prelaw major Abigail Barnes, chair of the executive council, will serve as panel moderator. Barnes will pose questions for the panelists to discuss and will conclude the panel by taking questions from the audience.

The goal of the event is to promote open discussion regarding immigration, allowing participants to hear different perspectives and information regarding the political, historical and economic factors involved.

“Immigration is a hot topic right now and, as Christians, we need to formulate our views on this important topic,” said Barnes. “This panel will give people the opportunity to hear different viewpoints and then think through it for themselves.”
