GW WonkCast S3E3-2: The J-1 Exchange Visitor Program

The Trump administration proposed changes to the J-1 visa exchange program, a non-immigrant cultural and educational exchange visa that allows residents of other countries to travel to the U.S. What impact do cultural exchange programs have and how could this change them? What could this mean for American soft power and national security? Special guest MPA Bryan  Yannantuono, who worked for four years in the international exchange field, joins Moderator Jessica Blackband and GW WonkCast original hosts Haley Dunn and Adam Brooks to unpack. All views expressed are his own.
