Law School Symposium To Examine U.S. Immigration Policy

The University of Iowa College of Law's Journal of Gender, Race & Justice will examine the effectiveness of U.S. border and immigration policies in its 10th annual symposium Oct. 7 and 8 at the Boyd Law Building.

"Crossing the Line? Examining Current U.S. Immigration & Border Policy" will also examine the ways in which immigration policy marginalizes some ethnic groups and provide an in-depth look at alternative immigration and border policy alternatives.

Among the speakers will be numerous immigration law experts from law schools across the country, as well as experts from other fields. Speakers include Cheryl Mason and Anna Stepanova, immigration law attorneys from the Iowa City firm of Mason & Stepanova; documentary filmmakers Ari Luis Palos and Eren Isabel McGinnis; and author Roberto Martínez.
