Immigration: The Role of States

Monday, February 7, 2011
12:00 PM - 02:00 PM
American University Washington College of Law, Room 600
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC

In response to abdication by the federal government of its responsibility to address comprehensively our failing immigration system, state and local governments have undertaken a variety of legislative and law enforcement initiatives that have, in turn, spawned legal challenges asserting that the initiatives overstep the authority of state and local governments and pose the potential for discriminatory enforcement. With Congress seemingly incapable of passing immigration legislation in the near future, these conflicts will only intensify.
