558 - Immigration Policy (2 hours)*
This class is a seminar where students study and debate contemporary issues in immigration policy. The topic for Fall 2020 will be “Seeking Asylum." Unlike the Immigration Law survey course offered in the spring, the Immigration Policy seminar does not comprehensively cover the major components of the Immigration and Nationality Act. There is no final exam; instead students will collaborate to create a capstone class project (a website explaining and critiquing efforts to restrict asylum at the southern border). The spring Immigration Law survey course is not a prerequisite for the Immigration Policy seminar; interested students may enroll in either or both classes in any order.
* This course may be offered for 3 hours during some years.
