GAC presents a talk on Immigration Reform/DACA: PUB 9208
Thurs., Jan. 25: 12:30-1:20pm
Speaker: Christopher Strawn, Director, Immigration Law Clinic, University of Washington; and, Staff Attorney, Northwest Immigration Rights Project

There are an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants currently residing in the United States. Allowing these immigrants to regularize their status, some argue, is good for the U.S. economy, strengthens national security, and enhances America’s culture. Others oppose amnesty arguing that it only rewards those who have broken our immigration laws. They want immigration reform that focuses on enforcement and upholding the rule of law. This presentation is a collaboration between Global Affairs Center (GAC) and the Office of Students, Equity, & Success
