crImmigration.com followers in the New York or Chicago area may be interested in a couple of events coming up this week and next. I will be speaking at both events.
St. John’s University School of Law in New York will be hosting “Border Patrols: The Legal, Racial, Social and Economic Implications of United States Immigration Policy” on Friday, March 16 (tomorrow). This promises to be an exciting day-long event featuring immigration law professor extraordinaire (and current president of the Association of American Law Schools) Michael Olivas (University of Houston). As part of this day-long symposium, I will be speaking about the origins of the mass immigration imprisonment in 1980s war on drugs rhetoric and legislation.
The following weekend, on March 24, the National Lawyers Guild will be holding its annual Midwest regional conference in Chicago. Along with Linus Chan (DePaul), I will be speaking on a workshop titled “Crimmigration 101: A Primer on Navigating the Immigration Consequences of Criminal Cases.”
