SOAN Colloquium Talk, co-hosted by the Institute for Immigration Research (IIR)

Elizabeth Vaquera, "Fear and Vulnerability: Social Consequences of Enforcement Practices in the Lives of Undocumented Immigrant Young"

Sociology and Anthropology
Commerce Building, Room 3006 (IIR Building, 4087 University Dr.)
October 1, 2014, 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM

Although legal discourse regarding immigration enforcement theoretically purports colorblindness, racial practices such as profiling subject immigrants to arrest, detention, and deportation, in effect, criminalizing them.
