With immigration reform likely around the corner, what does the future hold for the DREAM Act? And what impact has President Obama's Executive Order (outlining a policy of not deporting young people without legal immigration status but with clean records) had? Join the Program in Public Law and the Duke Law ACLU for a discussion with UCLA Law Professor Hiroshi Motomura about California's version of the DREAM Act, prosecutorial discretion, immigration violations, politics, and implementation. This event comes one day before the Perspectives on Migration, Governance, and Citizenship Symposium, which students are also encouraged to attend. Lunch will be provided, with funding from the DBA.
