WOLA is pleased to invite our colleagues and friends in Chicago to the following events on
 
Beyond the Border Buildup:
Security and Migration Today

 
With WOLA experts
 
Adam Isacson
Senior Associate for Regional Security Policy
 
Maureen Meyer
Senior Associate for Mexico and Central America

Join WOLA’s border experts Adam Isacson and Maureen Meyer, whose 2012 report Beyond the Border Buildup: Security and Migrants along the U.S.-Mexico Border documents the incredible growth in the U.S. security apparatus—and the humanitarian crisis of migrants—at the border. Isacson and Meyer have carried out research in six different border zones since 2011, including a November survey of south Texas, and are involved in the fast-moving debate in Washington. Isacson and Meyer also manage WOLA’s Border Fact Check, which separates rhetoric from reality in order to set the record straight on what’s happening at the border.
 
Isacson and Meyer will be in Chicago for a series of events and meetings related to their ongoing work on border security and migration. Please join us at one of these events for a timely discussion of the current situation on the U.S.-Mexico border and its implications for the human rights of migrants.
