Description

This panel examined and critiqued contemporary developments in American immigration law and policy. Leading scholars who have written extensively on immigration law over the past twenty years discussed how immigration rules have enhanced race and class inequalities, and how immigration status itself is becoming a major axis for social inequality. We discussed policies governing admissions, enforcement, and deportation, and also presented leading federal cases that have shaped immigration law and policy since 1980. Finally, we discussed current proposals for reform as well as their possible consequences.
