SMU Dedman School of Law: Symposium on Immigration Law Immigrants, Vigilantes, and Immigration Reform: Civil Rights in the 21st Century
"At the outset of the 21st Century, United States immigration law and policy has become one of the most pressing issues of our time. In recent years we have witnessed among other things, calls for dramatically restricting immigration in light of an alleged threat to American national identity, increased border law enforcement associated with thousands of deaths on the U.S./Mexican border and vigilante activity, special immigration laws and legal procedures enacted for the “war on terror,” and mass marches protesting draconian immigration reform in cities across the United States, including Dallas, Texas. The conference seeks to deal with these issues."
