    A New Era in Immigration? Part 2

    Join us for the second of a 3-part webinar series on immigration law and policy changes following the inauguration of President Biden.

    The Biden administration has committed to end the Remain in Mexico program, which has forced asylum seekers to wait indefinitely for their US asylum proceedings in dangerous conditions in Mexico. Other policies that effectively blockade the border to asylum seekers may also finally be abandoned. In addition, there is a strong push for President Biden to end an immigration system that has seen widespread detention of asylum seekers, families and children, and other migrants, often in facilities run by for-profit prison companies. This panel will explore not only a possible end to exclusionary policies but also a new vision that would emphasize humane processing of asylum seekers arriving at the U.S. southern border. The panelists will consider public health, legal and policy questions that will arise during the transition away from an enforcement-focused approach.

    This event is sponsored by the Immigration Clinic, the William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law , and the St. Edward’s University Social Work Program.

    Topics to be discussed: - Major defamation cases happening right now and their implications. - How these cases relate to incitement. - The U.S. Supreme Court’s (and other branches of government) vilification of the press (perhaps in the context of Judge Silberman’s recent dissent). - How does/should press partisanship affect how we view these cases and issues. - Issues related to post-truthism and what constitutes “the press.” - ALSO - Breaking Into Academia from the Non-Traditional Law Schools, with the opportunity to answer student questions Moderated by Professor Steven Collis (Texas Law).
