The 3 p.m. program will be held in Benson University Center’s Pugh Auditorium. It is free and open to the public.

Cole will speak about the challenges immigrants face during wartime. He will consider historical precedents for the current situation and examine Supreme Court decisions that create a context for preserving civil liberties in the United States.
