While immigration reform largely has stalled in Washington, it has occupied a prominent place at other levels of government. The recall of Arizona State Senator and lead sponsor of the heavily publicized immigration law SB 1070, Russell Pearce, and the new Alabama stringent immigration law HB 56 reflect the heated nature of this controversial and momentous issue. The objective of this panel is to generate discussion of immigration policy at state and local levels, especially in border states such as California. Among the issues to be discussed are the influence of Arizona’s SB 1070, the leveling of Mexican emigration and immigration to the United States, and the effects of the coming elections in the United States and Mexico.
This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP to Transborder@sandiego.edu
