Immigration and COVID-19: What’s the Connection? What are we Learning?

 

COVID-19 has shined a spotlight on characteristics of immigrants and immigration that have been largely unseen prior to the pandemic. Those characteristics include the fact that the foreign-born have been at the cutting edge of the crisis by being overrepresented in both essential worker occupations – especially health care and food production – as well as in those suffering the largest job losses.  What the evidence is showing about the connections between the nation’s health crisis and immigration and what they mean looking ahead will be the subject of this program.

Mike Gousha is a distinguished fellow in law and public policy at Marquette University Law School and Lynn Sprangers is an award-winning journalist who served in executive capacities in sports, higher education and the performing arts.  They are producers of a new documentary film for PBS, America’s Socialist Experiment, which looks at the nearly half century when socialists led Milwaukee, including three mayors and the first socialist congressman.  With special relevance in Milwaukee’s selection as the site of the 2020 Democratic National Convention, the film looks at these “sewer socialists” who fought for clean drinking water and public health programs, vowing to clean up the city. The film airs on Milwaukee PBS on June 9 at 8:00 pm and Mike and Lynn will offer insights into what they learned while filming this unique 20th Century political drama that played out in Milwaukee.
