On February 26, the Metropolitan Policy Program and Greater Washington Research at The Brookings Institution will host a discussion focusing on a new report that examines the local, regional and national factors that led Prince William County, an outer suburb of the nation’s capital, to adopt tough measures against unauthorized immigrants. Additional case studies will be explored, with a focus on the ripening immigration debate and ideas for successfully addressing long-term demographic changes and challenges.

Brookings Senior Fellow Audrey Singer will present the report, and Marcela Sanchez of the New York Times Syndicate will moderate a panel discussion.  After the program, panelists will take audience questions.

The program is called “Immigration, Politics and Local Responses,” on Thursday, Feb. 26 from 2 to 4 p.m. at The Brookings Institution, Falk Auditorium, 1775 Massachusetts Ave., NW, Washington, DC

To RSVP for this event, call the Office of Communications at 202-797-6105 or click here.

15 Thoughts to “Study on Immigration with chapter on PWC to be released”

  1. Slowpoke Rodriguez

    Marcela Sanchez of the New York Times. I’ll bet that’ll be REAL fair and balanced.

  2. ShellyB

    Slowpoke Letiecq, your indoctrination is so cute! I wonder, where did you get that “fair and balanced” coinage?

    Next time add an original thought as a p.s.

  3. Conservador

    Slowpoke Rodriguez Pastuso, here is your chance to go and ask questions, debate and show that Marcela Sanchez is not fair and balanced. Also you may be able to teach the people of the Brookings Institution, what the immigration policy should be. At the construction site the toilet paper is always replaced with the New York Times and the Washington Post. Those are Don’s John’s favorites for construction workers.

    Thanks for posting this Cindy! I will actually be in D.C. for my son’s field trip, I would LOVE to “pop” in and ask some questions. I’ll see if I can arrange it.

  5. SecondAlamo

    You have to admit that having a moderator with that name alone has got to appear as bias if for no other reason. Try having a moderator named Mohammed as moderator for a discussion on 911, and what would you think?

  6. Slowpoke Rodriguez


    Original….like Slowpoke Letiecq? Original like that? You crack me up, hon.

    Seriously, though, if you would indulge me for a second, I’d like to interrupt the chorus of cherubim singing “I’d like to buy the world a coke” in your head for a moment to ask you an off-topic question. Do you find the New York Post chimp cartoon racist? Yes or No?

  7. Moon-howler

    Yes, Slowpoke, it was racist, (not that you asked me) and remember, I am very careful about saying things or people are racist. That was an incredibly tacky cartoon.

  8. Alanna

    Thanks Cindy for posting this.

  9. Rick Bentley

    The NY Post cartoon should not be published (in the Post) because a large percentage of viewers will/would interpret it as about race. I’ll give the cartoonist and the editors benefit of doubt but if you ask me they shouldn’t have published it.

    And I won’t prejudge Sanchez by her name. But it turns out she is quite biased – http://24ahead.com/blog/archives/003593.html

  10. Moon-howler

    And that was an unbiased report, Rick? don’t think so. And I don’t have an opinion one way or the other on Ms. Sanchez.

  11. hello

    This should be interesting…

  12. Slowpoke Rodriguez


    Well, I thank you for answering anyway, even if I didn’t ask you! My point wasn’t to say anything about it, just curious.

  13. That’s so odd. I thought that Mr. Slowpoke was objecting to the fact that the moderator works for the NY Times. I completely missed the idea that he would find the name “Sanchez” objectionable until Mr. Alamo clarified it for me.

    Perhaps we are beginning to unlearn what we learned in 2007 … that all things Hispanic are under assault and/or under suspicion. Thank God for that.

    Does anyone have a link to the actual report?
