One Day University presents a series of audio lectures recorded in real-time from some of the top minds in the United States. Given by award-winning professors and experts in their field, these recorded lectures dive deep into the worlds of religion, government, literature, and social justice.The United States is a nation of immigrants, a beacon of hope and liberty peoples around the world have struggled to reach. Yet Americans have not always welcomed new arrivals with open arms. From colonial days to the present, debates over immigration help define who Americans are, what they believe their country has and should be, and reveal most of all each generation's politics and priorities. Do the debates over immigration reform indicate the welcome mat has worn thin? What does it mean to hold out a beacon to the world's tired, poor, huddled masses? Do we welcome immigrants in because of or despite their economic impact on the United States?This audio lecture includes a supplemental PDF.
