A Perpetual Crisis: Reflections on Renewed Public Health Failures at the U.S./Mexico Border

May 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In March 2021, a record number of children arrived at the U.S./Mexico border, challenging capacity at US Customs and Border Protection facilities and placing newfound pressure on the Biden Administration to act promptly. However, this humanitarian crisis is not new, nor is it a direct result of a new U.S. government administration.

April 29 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
