Kit Johnson, Associate Professor of Law, at the University of Oklahoma College of Law, submitted this guest blog post. Thanks Kit!
Several weeks ago, I had the pleasure of auditing Rose Cuison Villazor’s week-long Immigration Law & Border Enforcement Program in El Paso. It was a wonderful experience, and one I strongly recommend other interested professors to consider—especially since Rose indicated to me her willingness to take on other academics as attendees. I left with with a fresh perspective on the border, immigration court, consulates, and detention.
During the program, I took many photographs. You can find photos of the border and immigration court on my flickr stream. There are very few publicly available photos of immigration court, so I hope the ones I took may be useful. I will note that the EOIR did not allow photography of the courtroom with the EOIR seal in place, so if it feels as though something is missing, there is.
All of these photos are “konomarked,” which means that most rights are shareable. If you’d like to use these photographs in the classroom, on a website, or for other materials, just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask. -- Kit Johnson
