The Political Geography of Immigrant Rights in the United States

April 5, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Deborah M. Weissman, Reef C. Ivey II Distinguished Professor of Law

This talk will focus on how immigrant rights in the United States are dependent on place.  Although federal immigration law, including deportation policies, applies uniformly to all fifty states and their political subdivisions regardless of local culture or political leanings, reality diverges from this fundamental legal principle.  Depending upon place of residency, federal legal protections for immigrants may be arbitrarily enforced.
