Lakeshore Public Media and Purdue University Northwest plan to convene a panel discussion about immigration in light of the recent controversy over a ban on travel from seven Muslim countries.
Two Purdue University Northwest faculty members and an attorney who graduated from the university will discuss “Executive Power & Legal Questions about Immigration” in Hammond at 5 p.m. Tuesday. Chris Nolte, Lakeshore Public Media newscaster and host of the “Regionally Speaking” show, will moderate the talk on the concourse level of the Student Union and Library in the Room with a View at PNW’s Hammond Campus.
Associate Professor of Political Science and constitutional legality expert Frank Colucci and Assistant Professor of Political Science Yu Ouyang will discuss U.S. presidential power and immigration issues with associate attorney Alfredo Estrada, an immigration expert who works for the Northwest Indiana firm of Burke Costanza & Carberry LLP.
They will have a one-hour-long discussion that will be recorded and later broadcast on Lakeshore Public Radio, which can be found on 89.1-FM. The public is welcome to attend the free event.
