Print Friendly and PDF

Last month I tweeted that the VDARE.com Immigration Conference Series is slated for November 24, 2018 and February 2, 2019 at the NYC Hilton Midtown.

Now I’m happy to announce a preliminary schedule for your registration and travel planning. The detailed conference schedule will be published as soon as all our have confirmed their participation.

The theme of this series, “Chain Migration and Birthright Citizenship,” is intended to focus our understanding on the two most important issues of patriotic immigration reform today. You will notice that in the preliminary schedule below we have built in ample time for networking and socializing. This is purposeful. It is our hope that attendees come away with both a deeper understanding of our theme and strengthened bonds of community with other immigration patriots.

For those with a Reserved or Patron Ticket, lunch and a dinner will be provided.

To learn more about our speakers, please see the list below.

Steve Sailer

Journalist, blogger and movie critic. Steve’s proposal, termed the Sailer Strategy, that the GOP gain political support by appealing to its white base through patriotic immigration reform, affordable family formation and economic protectionism, was proved by Donald Trump’s presidential victory. Described by Tyler Cowen as “the most significant neo-reactionary thinker today,”  and his analysis has be cited in National Review, The Washington Times, The New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle and The Times of London. His work frequently appears on Taki’s Magazine and VDARE.com, and his blog is hosted at Unz.com.

*The speakers list and schedule are subject to change. Not all speakers listed are confirmed and more will be added.

Registration for the first conference in our series, will open October 17, 2018.

(Let me say a word about pricing. It has become virtually impossible for patriotic immigration reformers to meet in public and our ticket prices reflect the increased security costs and additional expenses associated with politics in the current year. The fact is, we’re taking an enormous financial risk with this conference because we understand how important it is for the people in our movement to assemble freely – something that can no longer be taken for granted in America.)

There are three ticket levels described below. Keeping in mind that we have many supporters all over the world who are interested in the conference proceedings, we are also making a live stream available. There are no press passes available for this event.
