Immigrant Policy in the 50 U.S. States, 2005-2015

with Jamie Monogan, SPIA

In the decade spanning 2005-2015, the 50 American states adopted 2,699 provisions related to the lives of immigrants. Policies ranged from largely symbolic measures (such as public commendations for notable immigrants in the community) to substantial measures that directly affected immigrants’ lives (such as Arizona’s controversial show-me-your-papers law). This presentation describes how these laws varied in substance, in tone towards immigrants, and in level of substantive significance.


 

The PORTAL immigration forum is a series of brown bag lunch presentations around immigration from multiple disciplines during Hispanic Heritage Month. Each session will feature faculty from UGA and LACSI presenting their research or service and then leading a discussion about their topics.
