UC Davis Conference: Immigration Reform: What Next?

Immigration Reform: What Next?
Friday, October 11
UC Davis School of Law, Kalmanovitz Appellate Courtroom
8:30 AM – 6:30 PM

The US has over 40 million foreign-born residents, almost 20 percent of the world’s migrant stock. Over a quarter of these migrants, some 11 million, are irregular, and three-fourths of these irregular migrants are in the labor force.
The Senate approved a comprehensive reform bill in June 2013 on a 68-32 vote. The House Judiciary Committee approved four bills in June 2013 that would increase enforcement and expedite the entry of guest workers for agriculture and STEM occupations.
Recent changes in immigration laws and flows are reshaping immigration to this country. This conference summarizes the current status of immigration reform in the United States and the impact of these changes on our society, economy and political system. This conference is organized by the Immigration Law Association of UC Davis with the generous support of the Giannini Foundation, the Gifford Center, and the IFHA Temporary Migration project.
