Description:   An educational panel discussion: What is the political landscape for immigration reform in 2009 in the context of the past November elections and the economic crisis? This panel will address what is currently happening in the national arena around the prospect of immigration reform in 2009. The organizers of the event hope to move participants from an analytical discussion illuminating the racial, cultural, and economic conflicts embedded in the current immigration debate, to a proactive construction of arguments for a more humane immigration and global labor system.
