This seminar will focus on recent state-level immigration referenda and voter approved legislation passed in the states of Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. It details how this new legislation aims to restrict educational opportunities to Latino undocumented children despite the fact that the actual numbers of undocumented children in these states may be low. As such, these new laws represents a new wave of anti-immigrant legislation that targets children in order to intimidate undocumented families. This session will discuss how these laws conflict with current US federal protections against discrimination and discuss areas for future research and policy analysis.
