U.S. Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) will discuss immigration and national security during the Trump administration at a CNN town hall at the George Washington University’s Jack Morton Auditorium at 9 p.m. March 1.

GW alumna and CNN Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash, B.A. ’93, will moderate the one-hour primetime event in front of a live studio audience.

GW students, faculty and staff will receive an email with instructions on how to request to attend the town hall.

Mr. McCain, chair of the Senate Committee on Armed Services, and Mr. Graham, chair of the Senate Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, will discuss “key issues facing the country, including America’s place on the world stage, U.S. Russian policy, immigration and other national security issues facing Americans at home,” according to CNN.

The event, which comes the day after President Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress, will air on CNN, CNN en Español, CNN International, CNNgo, Westwood One Radio Network and on CNN Channel 116 on Sirius XM.
