'The 9/11 Effect and its Legacy on U.S. Immigration Laws' Sept. 16

In the 10 years after the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2011, the Federal government created dozens of programs aimed at terrorists that impacted tens of thousands of individual immigrants and their families. The Center for Immigrants’ Rights at Penn State Law will offer “The 9/11 Effect and its Legacy on U.S. Immigration Laws” on Sept. 16, 2011.

Attorneys, immigration advocates, policy analysts, and scholars are welcome to attend an event designed to:

  • -- Identify the continuing impact of post-9/11 immigration policies;
  • -- Examine the relationship between these policies and human rights and race;
  • -- Discuss whether these policies served as legitimate national security tools; and
  • -- Identify potential policy changes.

Confirmed speakers include Susan M. Akram, clinical professor of law at Boston University; Donald Kerwin Jr., vice president for programs at the Migration Policy Institute; Sin Yen Ling, staff attorney at the Asian Law Caucus; Wendy Patten, senior policy analyst of the Open Society Institute; Kareem Shora, senior policy advisor at the Department of Homeland Security; and Lt. Col. Margaret Stock, attorney and member of the U.S. Army Reserve.  To learn more, visit http://www.law.psu.edu.
