Immigration Reform 2017: What to Look For, What to Worry About

Thursday February 2nd, 2017 - 3:35 PM
(1.0 CLE) During the campaign, Donald Trump spoke of big changes to immigration policy and laws. But the details remain murky, especially in light of post-election comments that may signal a pullback from some of the more dramatic campaign statements. This session will look at several of the major issue areas, such as: the wall; the fate of Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals; E-Verify; expanded interior enforcement, including action against visa overstays; sanctuary cities and the appropriate role for state and local governments; and statutory reform of admission categories. We will examine alternative paths open to the new administration, with benchmarks for evaluating whether a change really improves our complex migration management system or instead just plays to popular misconceptions.
