Why Walls Won’t Work

A Conversation with Michael Dear and Michael Lee

Why Walls Won't Work
On January 25, 2017, President Trump ordered the immediate construction of a wall along our southern border and an increase of aggressive efforts to find and deport unauthorized immigrants. But the U.S.-Mexican border already has a wall, and critics already question its usefulness. So what exactly is the point of the second wall? Would it work? And who stands to benefit most?
Join acclaimed urbanist and geographer Michael Dear, Ph.D., of the University of California, Berkeley, and Michael E. Lee, Ph.D., associate professor of theology affiliated with Fordham’s Latin American and Latino Studies Institute, for a conversation that will address all these questions and more. Join us as we trace the border’s history of cultural interaction and address what cross-border communities may teach us about how to better build bridges and live together.
