WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22, 2017
Dinner 6:30 p.m.

Today the border between the United States and Mexico is a source of controversy and divisiveness. It was not always so. For generations after its creation, both governments cooperated to keep it open and lightly patrolled. That changed in the 1910s, with continuing reverberations for today.
