Two Conferences on Immigration Reform
Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Feb 12, 2015
I recently returned from two conferences on the future of immigration reform.
On Friday, I visited the Mile-High City to deliver the morning lecture at the Law Review Symposium at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, titled “CrImmigration: Crossing the border between criminal law and immigration law.” I talked about my work Racial Profiling in the 'War on Drugs' Meets the Immigration Removal Process: The Case of Moncrieffe v. Holder.
On Saturday, I was in Ann Arbor to take part in a panel discussion at the Michigan Journal of Law Reform immigration reform conference. The panel was titled “Crimmigration: The Conflation of Immigration Enforcement and Criminal Justice.” Professor Gabriel “Jack” Chin also served as a conference panelist on the topic of President Obama’s executive action on immigration.
Both events on the future of immigration reform were extremely interesting. Thanks to the organizers at the University of Denver and the University of Michigan for inviting me to participate!
