Please join us for the third event in the Wayne Morse Center Migration Project’s 2012-13 speaker series “The Borders Within: Immigrants, Race, and the Politics of Surveillance and Enforcement in the United States.”

  •  Friday, May 3,  2-3:30 p.m.—Roundtable featuring Karthick Ramakrishnan, University of California Riverside, and Larry Kleinman, PCUN Oregon’s Farmworker Union, and Maru Villalpando, Latino Advocacy, LLC .
  • 4-5:30 p.m.—Keynote address, “Diffuse Militarism: The Politics and Practice of Detention and Deportation after 9/11,” by Mat Coleman, Ohio State University.

In the absence of comprehensive immigration reform, the anti-immigrant backlash has taken root in a range of efforts to enforce national boundaries/borders. This event addresses the devolution of immigration policing and enforcement to the local and state levels, through state legislation such as Arizona’s SB 1070. The panel and keynote speaker will examine how these anti-immigrant policies are affecting immigrant communities, and efforts to organize in defense of immigrant rights at the local and state scales.”
