The California International Law Center hosted influential Immigration economist Giovanni Peri to talk about the economics of immigration with the King Hall community. Professor Peri discussed the contemporary history of immigration to the United States and the economic impacts of that flow of immigrants. Interestingly, immigration from China and India has increased while that from Mexico has decreased.

At the same time, the Filipino Law Students Association kicked off its “Culture Week” with a presentation by Professor Rose Villazor by Skype. There was a full house of students to hear her talk. Professor Villazor also discussed immigration to the United States.

I split my time between the two amazing speakers. We are lucky to have such great opportunities to hear from influential Immigration scholars.
