Kristie De Peña, Immigration Policy Counsel at the Niskanen Center on Tahmina’s Radio Show 2/7/17 at 10am

I am thrilled to announce that Kristie De Peña, Immigration Policy Counsel at the Niskanen Center in Washington D.C. will be appear on my radio show “Immigration with Tahmina” on Desi 1250am on Tuesday February 7th 2017 at 10am PST!

Established in 2014, the Niskanen Center is a libertarian 501(c)(3) think tank that works to change public policy through direct engagement in the policymaking process: developing and promoting proposals to legislative and executive branch policymakers, building coalitions to facilitate joint action, and marshaling the most convincing arguments in support of our agenda.  The Center’s main audience is the Washington insiders – policy-oriented legislators, presidential appointees, career civil servants in planning, evaluation and budget offices, congressional committee staff, engaged academics, and interest group analysts – who together decide the pace and direction of policy change.

Kristie De Peña joined the Niskanen Center in April 2016 as policy counsel. She has a J.D. from the University of Iowa College of Law and an LL.M. in National Security and Foreign Policy from the George Washington University School of Law. Her research interests include immigration law and reform, and foreign policy, and her work has been cited in The Boston Globe, Huffington Post, Yahoo! News, and Reason.

Given the recent events under the new administration, it is important to hear about the work of policy analysts in Washington DC and the difference they are making. Kristie will be sharing her invaluable insights on immigration policy and recent events.
