Start Date: 9/28/2021Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 9/28/2021End Time: 8:00 PM
Event Description:
The ACLU Student Chapter and Immigration Law Student Organization will host a discussion on Immigration.

The ACLU Student Chapter and Immigration Law Student Organization will host a discussion on Immigration.
The first guest speaker offers a historical perspective (Academic-TBD). Some argue U.S. intervention has contributed to the destabilization of governments and the displacement of people within other counties. For over two centuries, the U.S. has welcomed millions of people from every corner of the globe. “Our motto of E Pluribus Unum, out of many, one.”

The second guest speaker, an Immigration Attorney (TBD) will draw some basic legal connections about Immigrants' rights, and what an Immigration attorney does. Some attorneys focus on asylum seekers fleeing violence or religious persecution, they assist with legal pathways for workers looking for better economic access for their family, work on policy changes when virtually no visas are available for Central Americans.

Finally, a Minnesota ACLU attorney (TBD) will discuss how this system is working for and against immigrants. Looking at the steep costs associated with applying for citizenship and often long waits in unstable or unsafe conditions. Is it working fairly for all immigrants? What about those who enter fairly and those who enter illegally; does illegal immigration impact legal immigration?
