Border Myths Symposium
This spring the California Western School of Law’s Law Review and International Law Journal are hosting a joint Symposium on Border Myths: Exploring the Myths and Realities of U.S. Immigration Policies:
When it comes to immigration policies at the United States borders, many myths permeate the national discourse: myths about who is coming to the United States and how they cross; what makes migration legal or illegal; the impact of migrants on the United States and the communities they join; the rights and responsibilities of migrants and the states receiving them; and the legal responsibilities of the United States to migrants and the larger international community.
The symposium will identify the myths, critically look at the historical context and long-term effects, and propose novel approaches to understanding and addressing these issues at the federal, state, and local levels.
The Symposium will give the authors the opportunity to discuss their research and give the attendees the opportunity to join the discussion and earn MCLE credit.
