A discussion of the politics, policies, and pragmatics of current immigration policy, particularly the recent termination of DACA . This policy has important implications for students at our university and across the nation, staff members, and hundreds of thousands of individuals who may lose their rights to work and reside in the United States. 

This event will examine how immigration policy is made, the history of DACA and other immigration reform policies, and what we as a campus community can do to support our  community members. This event includes speakers from the Political Science Department, the Legal Studies Program, the Spanish and Portuguese Studies Program, the American Civil Liberties Union, and the Pioneer Valley Workers Center. Free and open to the public, with refreshments provided. 

Sponsored by the UMass College of Social & Behavioral Sciences, the Center for Latin American, Caribbean and Latino Studies (CLACLS), the Political Science Department, the Legal Studies Program, and the Spanish and Portuguese Studies Program.
