How Immigration Policy and U.S. Trade affect Presidential politics is the topic of two separate Shoreline Community College seminars — one at lunchtime and one in the evening — at Shoreline Community College this Wednesday, Oct. 24.
From 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Shoreline CC History Professor Amy Kinsel will explore whether immigration policy is a domestic issue or foreign policy issue. Kinsel has taught history at Shoreline Community college since 2004, including U.S. History, Women’s History, Pacific Northwest History, and Immigration History, the latter being one of her favorites.
At 7 p.m., Eric Schinfeld, President, Washington Council on International Trade, will discuss how Presidential electoral politics affect U.S. trade policy and visa-versa. WCIT is dedicated to growing Washington’s economy (where one in three jobs is trade-related) through public policies favorable to expanded opportunities in the global marketplace.
Both events are free and open to the public. They will be at Shoreline Community College, 16101 Greenwood Ave. N., Room 9208 PUB. They are part of a month-long series on America & the World in a Presidential Election Year, organized by the International Education, Global Affairs Center, run by Edmonds resident Larry Fuell.
