The year 2013 opened with intense bipartisan interest in comprehensive legislation, and in June, a bipartisan majority of the U.S. Senate passed a broad bill with legalization and a path to citizenship.  As the debate over immigration reform now moves from the U.S. Senate to the U.S. House of Representatives, the opponents of reform appear increasingly isolated. The supporters of comprehensive immigration reform include an array of business, organized labor, faith, and social justice organizations, as well as progressive and conservative organizations.  But even as support from across the political and civic spectrum builds toward action in the House, with polls showing that reform enjoys strong support from the American people, the voices in opposition are making headlines. 

Before the November 2012 elections, it would have been hard to predict such seismic shifts on immigration.  But the strong turnout among Latino and Asian American voters, who helped drive President Barack Obama to victory, is a large part of how we got here. 

Our panel discussion includes three experts who will offer their analyses of what has happened so far and the likely scenarios going forward, drawing on their years of experience in scholarship, advocacy, and journalism.
The 2013-14 David J. Epstein Program in Public Interest Law and Policy Speaker Series is made possible by the generous support of the Margaret Levy Fund.

Permit Parking

Parking on the UCLA campus is $12. For UCLA School of Law, park in Lot 2 or 3 (see map below). To purchase an all-day parking permit, please go to the parking kiosk at the Westholme and Hilgard Avenue entrance to the UCLA campus (to your right as you enter the campus) and ask to park in Lot 2, the parking lot to the south of the parking kiosk.
The School of Law is due north of Lot 2 and the parking kiosk.
Please note that permit parking is often difficult to secure during the day when the campus is in session.
Parking Pay Stations
Short-term parking is also available at self-service pay stations, which allow for parking by specified time periods. For UCLA School of Law, self-service pay stations can be found along the eastside of the School of Law building (although these are hard to secure), and in Lot 2 or Lot 3 (enter the Lots and follow the arrows to the “pay by space” sections) and at the outdoor parking spots east of the School of Law building.
