CILP - "Thank you for your interest in the Center for Immigration Law and Policy (CILP)’s event: Illegal Entry and Reentry Laws: Their Racism, Their Impact, and the Movement to End Them.
In this groundbreaking discussion, Gabriela first spoke with Alejandro, a San Diego father of three who is currently serving a sentence for illegal reentry in federal prison and the family who he’s separated from. Gabriela was then joined by Kara Hartzler, a federal public defender in San Diego who is spearheading the legal effort to render illegal entry and reentry statutes unconstitutional based on their racist intent, Professor Kelly Lytle Hernández, Thomas E. Lifka Endowed Chair in History at UCLA and MacArthur Fellow, who first discovered and documented how eugenicists shaped these laws, and UCLA Law Professor Ingrid Eagly, a former federal public defender and a leading researcher of these laws’ impact today.
