Join Neighbors for Refugees, along with our partner Welcome Home, during Welcoming Week for this special event celebrating the immigration landscape .. Read more today with author Jessica Goudeau, who will discuss her new book, "After the Last Border: Two Families and the Story of Refuge in America."The welcoming and acceptance of immigrants and refugees have been central to America’s identity for centuries–yet America has periodically turned its back at the times of greatest humanitarian need. After the Last Border is an intimate look at the lives of two women as they struggle for the twenty-first century American dream, having won the “golden ticket” to settle as refugees in Austin, Texas.After the Last Border situates a dramatic, character-driven story within a larger history–the evolution of modern refugee resettlement in the United States, beginning with World War II and ending with current closed-door policies–revealing not just how America’s changing attitudes toward refugees has influenced policies and laws, but also the profound effect on human lives.More information on the book: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/572566/after-the-last-border-by-jessica-goudeau/
