After making immigration the centerpiece of his campaign, President Donald Trump has implemented sweeping changes to the U.S. immigration system. These high-profile policy shifts have been coupled with more subtle adjustments across federal agencies that serve an immigration role. Many of these measures have affected immigrants, their families, employers, and the communities in which they reside.
To reflect the consequential and far-reaching shifts, both domestically and internationally, Santa Clara University Journal of International Law is hosting our Spring 2019 Symposium on Immigration Under Trump.
This event is open to law students, attorneys, and professionals.
Light Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
This event will qualify for Continuing Legal Education (CLE): 3 hours
