Criminalization of Immigration and Refugee Resettlement: Public Forum

Event

The Criminalization of Immigration and Refugee Resettlement: Implications for Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice

“Despite the abundance of evidence that immigration is not linked to higher crime rates, and that immigrants are less likely to be criminals than the native-born, many U.S. policymakers succumb to their fears and prejudices about what they imagine immigrants to be. As a result, far too many immigration policies… are criminalizing an ever broadening swath of the immigrant population by applying a double standard when it comes to the consequences for criminal behavior.”
-American Immigration Council

Marisol Brito, Philosophy Department, will moderate a panel and discussion with:

  • Rosario de la Torre, Advocacy Manager, Casa de Esperanza
  • John Keller, Executive Director, Immigrant Law Center
  • Mai Neng Moua, Attorney-at-Law, Mai N. Moua Law Office
