The Crucible of Citizenship

Participants: Jim Mattis, Josiah Ober, Kiron K. Skinner

Moderator: Michael McConnell

America was a multiracial, multilanguage, multireligion mixing bowl even before it was the United States. Debates over immigration and citizenship have been part of the American landscape from the start. Citizenship and its most important component— voting rights—have been the most frequent topic of constitutional amendments over the years. Panelists will discuss what it means to be a citizen and what it means to be an American.
