Immigration Workshop: The Scholar & Feminist 2012

The Obama Administration’s new “secure communities” program suggests that without extensive surveillance, immigrants can render their communities vulnerable. Meanwhile, the question of one’s potential vulnerability in their country of origin remains a key determinant in qualifying for asylum in the U.S. This workshop investigates who evaluates vulnerability and what part such judgments play in this country’s immigration system.

This workshop, led by Sunita Patel (Center for Constitutional Rights) and Rachel Tiven (Immigration Equality), was part of The Scholar and Feminist Conference 2012, “Vulnerability: The Human and the Humanities.”
