Impact Today!: SANCTUARY CITIES AND FEDERALISM
Impact Today! is a lunchtime series hosted by the Impact Center discussing how current events impact civil rights and civil liberties.
Program 2: Sanctuary Cities and Federalism
Bitta Mostofi, an immigrant rights attorney and Acting Commissioner of the Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs, will lead a timely discussion on the rights of local governments to become "Sanctuary Cities." Where did this idea originate? What does this look like in New York City in 2017? What actions may the federal government take to enforce federal immigration laws in local governments?
Lunch will be provided. This event is open to all NYLS students, staff and faculty. Attendance counts toward the Impact Center Community Hours requirements.
