Leadership Conference Briefing on Immigration Enforcement & Legislation

From the Leadership Conference:

When Congress turns its attention back to immigration reform this fall, we can expect to hear a lot of arguments about the need for "more enforcement."

The House Judiciary Committee has marked up several bills that weaken due process & labor protections, encourage profiling, and criminalize immigrants. What other kinds of proposals can we expect to see in the House? And what do they mean for civil and human rights - not just of immigrants, but of all of us? Join us for a panel discussion where several of our leading immigration and civil rights advocates will share their insights on this often-complicated - and always controversial - part of the legislative debate.

When:             Thursday, Sept. 12 at 4:00 PM

Where:           The Leadership Conference
