The Council for Emerging National Security Affairs is pleased to announce a teleconference event with Graeme Wood, national correspondent from The Atlantic. Graeme brings a tremendous understanding of the Islamic State and will offer his views on both the likely ineffectiveness of the proposed ban through the lens of recent IS and US strategy, as well as the broader implications. Immigration policy expert and CENSA founding member Scott FitzGerald will moderate the event.

CENSA requests that questions for the event be sent in advance to and in addition during the event itself via Twitter with the hashtag #CENSATALK.
