Before Johnson's presentation, Kristine Suna-Koro, assistant professor of theology, is making introductory remarks on faith-based advocacy for immigration reform in conversation with business perspectives. After Johnson's presentation, Leo Pierson, professor of sociology at Cincinnati State Community College, is providing a short sociological commentary on immigration.
