Arizona v. The United States: What Happened and What Difference Will it Make?

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 recent ruling on the constitutionality of the Arizona's immigration law, SB 1070. Speaking points will include:

  • How the ruling fits 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 the Court's decision will effect future as-applied challenges to the law.
October 4, 2012, 12:00 - 1:00. Room 175. Lunch will be served.
