From Ellis Island to the Chinese Exclusion Act and the Bracero Program, immigration to the United States has often been fraught with racism, electoral politics, and questionable business practices. Will the current bi-partisan proposal for Immigration Reform address injustices and improve the lives of the estimated 12 million people who reside in the country without papers? Who would qualify and be able to afford to enter the process? How would a new guest worker program avoid abuses committed during previous ones? What impact will the proposed agenda have on legislation such as Arizona’s SB 1070, immigration courts, and the proliferation of detention centers?
Join us for a discussion of the “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” proposal with recognized experts followed by an open dialogue with the USF community.
