Description

Banned: Immigration Enforcement in the Time of Trump

Within days of taking office, President Trump announced major changes to our nation’s immigration law and policy. These transformations have profoundly shaken the lives and well-being of immigrants and their families, many of whom have resided in the United States for decades. President Trump’s policies have also deeply affected the work of attorneys and advocates who represent or are themselves part of the immigrant community.

Professor Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia’s Enlund Lecture will examine the role of discretion in the creation and execution of the Trump administration's immigration policies, including the Muslim bans; changing enforcement priorities; the end of deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA) and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for certain nationals; the expanded use of no court deportations; and restrictions to asylum and refugee admissions.

Professor Wadhia’s talk will draw from her forthcoming book, Banned: Immigration Enforcement in the Time of Trump. The book’s analysis combines Professor Wadhia’s 20 years of experience in the immigration field with numerous personal interviews with individuals affected by immigration enforcement and discretion during the Trump administration; former government officials in the Immigration and Nationalization Service (INS) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS); and immigration attorneys and advocates working with individuals and communities impacted by immigration in the age of Trump.
