Event description

Description

This is a first-come, first-seated event, even for ticket-holding students. Please arrive early, as seats will be given to walk-in guests 5-10 minutes before the event begins.

Join us for a talk by Mary Romero uncovering the violations of constitutional rights stemming from current immigration laws and practices.

During his last decade as sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, Joe Arpaio became notorious for zealous immigration law enforcement sanctioned by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which included racial profiling and civil rights violations. The class action lawsuit, Ortega Melendres vs. Arpario, exposed violations of constitutional rights resulting from current immigration laws and practices.

Mary Romero is a professor of justice studies and social inquiry at Arizona State University. She is widely known for her research on the unequal distribution of reproductive labor as a paid commodity and its role in reproducing inequality among families within countries and between nations. Her research also includes analysis of social inequalities and social justice that incorporates the intersectionality of race, class, gender, and citizenship. She draws parallels between domestic gendered race relations and immigration and identifies the continuum between racism against citizens and racism against noncitizens. Romero is president–elect of the American Sociological Association.
