From the article:

The big picture: The partnership — to be announced Tuesday — between… Stand Together, and the Dallas center comes as Congress is expected to debate immigration reform proposals amid resistance from many Republicans.

The details: The Common Ground: Immigration Pop-Up Exhibit features nine stand-alone doors signifying popular proposals about reforming immigration as told through interactive video stories.

  • When users open the multimedia doors, the exhibition takes them through a journey seeking to link immigrants and non-immigrants.
  • The exhibit also will highlight polling data showing over 75% of Americans believe immigration is a good thing, or that three in five Americans support a plan providing citizenship for Dreamers.

The yearlong exhibit is launching in Dallas alongside a new book and portrait exhibit by former president Bush called “Out of Many, One: Portraits of America’s Immigrants.”

What they’re saying: “Immigration signifies the exceptional success of our nation as the land of opportunity,” Laura Collins, director of the Bush Institute-SMU Economic Growth Initiative, said in a statement. “When we welcome people who share our unwavering determination and optimism, we can remain a hopeful and prosperous society.”
