Lines of Immigration: When Law and Policy Intersect

On the base of the Statue of Liberty, Emma Lazarus's The New Colossus has served as the unofficial welcome to new immigrants to the United States: "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

In recent years, however, there have been new memoranda, practices, and policies that have made immigration more akin to law enforcement than citizenship integration. Further, changes to asylum law and immigration court practices have altered the separation of power, enabling individual administrations to set precedent for agencies, affecting thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of immigrants and their families in removal proceedings.

This CLE program will provide the legal community the opportunity to learn more about the current landscape from two of our region's most experienced immigration attorneys, who will discuss where our immigration law has been, where it currently stands, and what is at stake for the future.
