On April 30, with the Biden administration officially past the 100-day mark, the Honorable Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, will participate in the UCLA Center for Immigration Law and Policy's first-ever virtual conference. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
Mayorkas' appearance comes on the second day of the three-part event, April 30, at 12pm PT. He will deliver remarks and participate in a question-and-answer session with Center Co-Director Ahilan Arulanantham.
"I cannot think of a more critical person to hear from on the first 100 days of the Biden administration than Secretary Mayorkas," said Arulanantham. "The Center exists to generate innovative ideas at the intersection of immigration scholarship and practice, and transform those ideas into meaningful changes in policy. Leadership at DHS and the White House have a new, and dynamically different vision for our nation's immigration system. We look forward to speaking with the Secretary to examine what progress has been made in the first 100 days, and what we can expect in the months and years to come."
Other panels that day include “Movement Lawyering During the Biden Administration” with Muneer Ahmad (Yale Law School); Amaha Kassa (African Communities Together); Jacinta Gonzalez (Mijente); and Sameer Ashar (University of California, Irvine, Law School), and “Asylum and Other Humanitarian Protections - The Short and Long Term” with Guerline Jozef (Haitian Bridge Alliance); Jaya Ramji-Nogales (Temple University Law School); Erika Pinheiro (Al Otro Lado); and E. Tendayi Achiume (UCLA School of Law).
"Immigration Policy in the Biden Administration: The First 100 Days and Beyond" is a three-day virtual conference taking place on April 23, April 30, and May 7, 2021. See additional panel information and registration links at http://bit.ly/CILP100Days.
