DACA and the State of Immigration Policy

A discussion of the politics, policies, and pragmatics of current immigraion policy, particularly the recent termination of DACA.  This policy has important implications for students across the nation, staff members, and hundreds of thousands of individuals who may lose their rights to work or reside in the United States.

This event will examine how immigration policy is made, the history of DACA and other immigration reform policies, and what we as a College community can do to support our community members.  This event includes speakers from the UMass Political Science Department, the Legal Studies Program, Spanish, and the Portuguese Studies Program, as well as the American Civil Liberties Union, and the Pioneer Valley Workers Center.  Free and open to the public, with refreshments provided.

Sponsored by the UMass College of Social & Behavioral Science, the Center for Latin American, Caribbean and Latino Studies (CLACLS), the Political Science Department, the Legal Studies Program, Spanish, and the Portuguese Studies Program.
