Immigration Policy and Politics in 2020: Separating Fact from Fiction
Feb 26 @ 7:00 pm
Watkins Room, Trone Student Center, Furman University

The issue of both legal and illegal immigration promises to remain a major focus of the 2020 presidential election. In recent years, Congress and Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump have been unable to enact meaningful legislation to stem the flow of undocumented immigrants to the country or develop a plan for immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. However, the Trump administration has taken controversial steps to reduce the numbers of legal immigrants, undocumented immigrants, and asylum seekers coming to America. In addition, this past November, the Supreme Court heard arguments regarding whether the Trump administration can shut down the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which allows certain young undocumented immigrants to remain in the U.S. and work legally, but does not provide them a path to citizenship.

Furman’s Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow Angela Maria Kelley will examine trends in U.S. immigration policy and law, current challenges and controversies, and what the 2020 presidential candidates propose as the best approach to resolving this divisive issue.

Parking is available in the Trone Center parking lot or the chapel lots. If you park in the chapel lot, walk past the fountains toward the library and veer left around the library. You’ll see Trone Student Center immediately in front of you.

The first ever All-Female Veteran Quilt of Valor Ceremony
Feb 28 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
World Piece Restaurant

Marchant Real Estate Agent, Celeste Purdie, will be among ten Women Veterans to be awarded with a Quilt of Valor from the Upstate SC Quilt of Valor Foundation.  The mission of the foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.

A Quilt of Valor is the highest award a Veteran or Active Duty member of the Military can receive from a civilian foundation. The Quilt of Valor is uniquely made for each Veteran, so no two quilts are alike. Each quilt takes about 60 to 70 hours to complete and are made with love to provide comfort and healing to the courageous men and women who have bravely and selflessly served our country.

Celeste was selected to receive the quilt by Tamika Rowe, one of Marchant Real Estate’s veteran clients who Celeste assisted in purchasing her very first home. Tamika volunteers for the Quilt of Valor Foundation and will be presenting Celeste with her quilt at the ceremony. “Tamika works selflessly for veterans in our area in several volunteer roles and inspired me to get more involved in organizations that support women veterans,” says Celeste.
