Under siege:  Impacts of local anti-immigrant laws on Latino residents’ use of space

Recent years have seen an increase in state and local laws that aim to restrict the rights and privileges of U.S. immigrants, especially those who are undocumented.  This talk examines the rise of anti-immigrant local laws in the U.S., and explores their implications for Latino residents’ (immigrants and non-immigrants) use of space.

Room 5409, 12 PM – 2 PM
