Description:

A lively discussion with our expert panelists about the tensions between state and federal immigration enforcement priorities, including the conflicts that arise, the coordination that occurs, and the legal and legislative attempts that have been made to protect immigrants and immigrant communities.

We reflect on what has transpired during the Trump Administration and consider what may change during the Biden Administration. We learn about the federal-state supremacy issues at play, the status and significance of the Safe Communities Act, the relevance of sanctuary cities initiatives, the ongoing challenge of courthouse arrests, the risks to state court judges, and much more.
