Immigration Law

Virtual Book Chat, Monday, May 4, 2020, 4:00 PM EST

DU Law Prof. César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández writes:

"On Monday, May 4, I’ll join two outstanding scholars and advocates, Alina Das and Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia, to talk about immigration policing in the United States. Join us!

Professors Das and Wadhia both recently published books about various aspects of immigration law and policy. In No Justice in the Shadows: How America Criminalizes Immigrants, Das describes the demonizing bent of U.S. immigration law and law enforcement. In Banned: Immigration Enforcement in the Time of Trump, Wadhia focuses on the important role of discretion in carrying out U.S. immigration law. Both represent the most accessible work by scholars who have been digging deeply into these issues for years in academic articles. I’ll be sharing thoughts from my book Migrating to Prison: America’s Obsession with Locking Up Immigrants.

Participation is free and RSVP is not required. To join us on Monday, May 4, at 2:00 p.m. Mountain/4:00 p.m. Eastern, follow this Zoom link and use the password 041391."
