Here is a recording of the Oct. 13, 2022 MIRR Alliance webcast on Nativist Extremism: How did nativist extremists capture the GOP, strangle immigration reform—and what to do about it? Strong nativist sentiment, once relegated to the ideological fringes, has found a home in the Republican Party. Today, an increasingly acrimonious culture war powered by anti-immigrant posturing and contemporary narratives of fear has paralyzed the political process. Nativism endorses a racially and ethnically defined idea of nationhood that degrades our democracy. As Congress and the country prepare to decide whether to adopt just and common sense immigration reform, many in the GOP are succumbing to nativist appeals. How did we get here? How do we eliminate support for nativist demagoguery? MIRR Alliance, along with key leaders and immigration policy experts, invites you to a webinar discussion to grapple with those questions and ask: what is our role as leaders in the fight for immigration reform?"
