Poynter is hosting the webinar “How Many, Which Ones? The Refugee Crisis and U.S. Immigration Reform.” The webinar provides a deeper understanding of the policies and politics that impact which immigrants get refugee status in the United States.

Participants will examine how refugees who flee persecution or violence across the world are accepted into the U.S.; discuss the differences between refugee status, asylum and Temporary Protected Status; describe current reform efforts in Congress to reform immigration law; and more.

The webinar will be held July 13.
