Immigration Enforcement in a New Regime: Are There Any Safe Spaces?

Discussion of the emergence of the sanctuary movement, the phaseout of DACA, and how these developments fit into today’s immigration debates.

Responding to intensified federal immigration enforcement, some cities and states have declared themselves “sanctuaries.”  The federal government has pushed back, and is ending a different sort of “safe space”—the DACA program.  This panel will discuss the emergence of the sanctuary movement, the phaseout of DACA, and how these developments fit into today’s immigration debates.
