Although often described as an “immigrant nation,” the United States cannot seem to make up its mind about the topic. America takes in more immigrants a year than any other nation on Earth, but the percentage of authorized immigrants accepted per capita is low — lower than Canada and many other industrialized nations.

A panel of experts on immigration — who represent public policy, academia and social activism — will appear together April 12 at “The Panel on Immigration,” the fourth in a series of provocative panel discussions presented by the Ojai Chautauqua.

Presenting their views and research on the timely issue of immigration are: moderator Herbert E. Gooch, a California Lutheran University professor in the department of political science; Elton Gallegly, a former U.S. representative; Hiroshi Motomura, UCLA scholar of immigration and citizenship law; Abbé Kingston, an immigration attorney; Arsenio Lopez, executive director of the Mixteco/Indigena Community Organizing Project; and Ric Oberlink, senior writing fellow and former executive director of Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS).
