We all know that the Supreme Court ruled on Arizona's controversial immigration law SB 1070 this June, but what did the opinion really mean?
Join ACS and Brandeis School of Law's Professor Enid Trucios-Haynes, a nationally recognized scholar in immigration law, to discuss the Supreme Court's ruling and to make sense of what it all means. Speaking points will include:
- How does the ruling fit the Court's jurisprudence regarding the role of states and municipalities enforcing federal immigration law?
- Was the Court's finding three of the four provisions pre-empted while leaving the most controversial provision intact a victory or a loss for immigrants' rights?
- How will the Court's decision effect future as-applied challenges to the law?
Today, October 4, 12:00, Room 175. Free Qdoba Hot Naked Burrito Bar (yes that's what it's really called)
