Presenting on Immigration Law from Coast to Coast
Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Mar 29, 2012
Today and tomorrow, I'll be making presentations on immigration law and policy, from coast to coast!
Today I am in Sacramento. At Sacramento State, in a talk sponsored by the Serna Center, I spoke to a full house in the CSUS main library building about immigration law and policy. The Sacramento Bee published a preview of my presentation. This afternoon I am at the Border Legislative Conference inside Sacramento's Tsakopoulos Library Galleria. The project's stated goal is "to empower border state legislators to engage in the binational agenda and provide input and direction in the development of policy between both countries." The event is being attended by state political leaders in the states along the US/Mexico border. I am taking part in a panel on "repatriation." Speaker John Pérez gave the welcome along with King Hall alum Darrell Steinberg '84.
Tomorrow I will be participating in the William & Mary Bill of Rights Journal's 2011-2012 Symposium, "Non-Citizen Participation in the American Polity." Thanks to Skype, I'll be taking part in this thought-provoking conference in Virginia... from Davis! I'm participating in a panel discussion entitled, "Are State Laws Restricting Immigrant's Civil Rights? Self-deportation and the Fight against the DREAM Act."
