Cooper-Walsh Colloquium: Remodeling Sanctuary: Urban Immigration in a New Era

The Fordham Urban Law Journal presents the 2018 Cooper-Walsh Colloquium, “Remodeling Sanctuary: Urban Immigration in a New Era.” The United States has gone through different periods of immigration policy, from periods of closed borders, to granting amnesty for undocumented immigrants. The most jarring of changes has occurred in more recent years, with the creation of family detention centers, the creation and end of DACA, and “zero-tolerance” policies, which led to family separation at U.S. borders. Cities have played a vital role in reacting to and upholding the changes in immigration policy. This year’s Colloquium is dedicated to exploring how different models of cities have adapted with recent immigration policies.


CLE credits are available for practicing attorneys. This event is open to the public.
