The AALS Section on Immigration Law is pleased to announce a program titled Immigrants Defending Democracy and Resisting Dictatorship during the 2024 AALS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

At the same time, immigrants are playing an important role in promoting democratic movements and resisting dictatorial ones. This panel will explore issues in the US and global context.
