Aftermath: Deportation Law and the New American Diaspora

Date(s): 11/12/2014

7:30 pm

TAMIU Student Center Ballroom
Current debates about immigration law tend to overlook a very important fact: Since 1996, when new, harsher deportation laws went into effect, the United States has deported millions of noncitizens back to their countries of origin. While the rights of immigrants--with or without legal status—and the appropriate pathways to legal status are the subject of much current debate, hardly any attention has been paid to what actually happens to deportees. In fact, The United States has created a “new diaspora” of deportees, many of whom are alone, isolated, subject to harsh treatment, with strong emotional and practical ties to their families and former communities in the United States.

This lecture considers how deportation has worked (and still operates) in the “nation of immigrants.” It also describes deportation's harsh aftermath: the actual effects on individuals, families, U.S. communities, and the countries that must process and repatriate ever-increasing numbers of U.S. deportees. Few know that once deportees have been expelled to places like Guatemala, Cambodia, Haiti, Jamaica, and El Salvador, many face severe hardship, persecution and, in extreme instances, even death.

Addressing a wide range of historical, political, social, and legal issues, this lecture considers whether our deportation system "works" in any meaningful sense. We must ask important legal and philosophical questions: What is the relationship between the "rule of law" and the border? Where do rights begin and end? Do (or should) deportees ever have a "right to return"? Deportation in the U.S. remains an anachronistic, harsh, legally questionable affair. This lecture urgently considers specific reform proposals for a more humane and rational deportation system within the broad contours of comprehensive immigration reform.

Please join us for our IBC Bank Keynote Speaker Series presentation featuring Daniel Kanstroom, Director of the International Human Rights Program at Boston College. The lecture will take place on Wednesday, November 12, 2014 at the TAMIU Student Center Ballroom at 7:30 pm.

This event is free and open to the public. Translation services (English to Spanish) will be available.

Adult Education & Literacy Community Forum

Date(s): 7/16/2014

8:30 am

UTHSC Laredo Regional Campus 1937 East Bustamante
This forum will give literacy organizations and others a chance to speak out on their public policy needs, ideas, recommendations and priorities for the new adult education program in Texas. In the wake of the Texas Legislature's 2013 decision to transfer adult education to the Texas Workforce Commission and recent changes in how Texas administers its adult education program, there has not been a more important moment for adult education in Texas in decades.

While change creates uncertainty, a huge opportunity exists to engage new voices to create an effective statewide adult education system. The forum will empower community leaders, inform policy recommendations to create an optimal system and build capacity for ongoing communication in the future for program participants, providers and other community quality of life benefits.

Following the forum, every participant will receive a detailed summary of Texans' adult education priorities once all forums in the state have been conducted and a summary of recommendations is compiled by the Texas Workforce Commission Adult Education & Literacy Advisory Program.
