Open Immigration – Right or Wrong? – Andrew Bernstein
With much of the debate over Brexit revolving around immigration, this contentious topic is more relevant than ever. Is the free movement of people beneficial to the UK? Should government policy be based on what leaders think is best for the British people, or do the rights of all humans take precedence, regardless of where they happened to have been born? Are certain “types” of immigrants better than others? In this talk, Dr Bernstein will discuss the immigration issue in America and the UK, including the similarities, differences and, most importantly, the principles that should guide a free country when determining its immigration policy.
Andrew Bernstein holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the Graduate School of the City University of New York. He has taught Philosophy at the State University of New York at Purchase, Marist College, Hunter College, the State University of New York at New Paltz, and other New York-area universities. He was selected as “Teacher of the Year” at both SUNY Purchase—and at Marymount College. In 2016-17, he was a Visiting Professor at the American University in Bulgaria (AUBG), where he taught Business Ethics.
