Community Foundation, Americas Quarterly to Hold Debate About Trump, Border Relations

How is the U.S.-Mexico relationship changing under President Donald Trump? What will the impact be on the border region?

Americas Quarterly magazine and a panel of experts will debate the future of the bilateral relationship—and how it will affect trade, immigration, and the millions of people who live along the border.

The event will be held in partnership with the El Paso Community Foundation and the U.S.-Mexico Border Philanthropy Partnership. A reception will follow the discussion.
