Panel to focus on immigration policy, March 9
Posted March 4, 2004; 05:20 p.m.
A panel discussion on "Immigration Policy: The DREAM Act and Access to Higher Education" is set for 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 9, in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall.
The panelists will focus on the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, introduced last August by Sens. Orrin Hatch and Richard Durbin. The act would provide qualified undocumented high school students who wish to attend college or serve in the armed forces an opportunity to adjust to a lawful status and pursue these goals.
Panelists will include: John Bernstein, director of federal policy at the National Immigration Law Center in Washington, D.C.; Iris Bordayo, a community organizer for the New Jersey Immigration Policy Network; Douglas Massey , professor of sociology and public affairs in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs; and Patrick Shen, immigration counsel for the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee.
The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and Program in Latin American Studies .
