Social Sciences Supper Club: What’s Next for U.S. Immigration Reform and Border Enforcement?

Featuring David FitzGerald, the Theodore E. Gildred Chair in U.S.-Mexican Relations, Associate Professor of Sociology, and Co-Director of the Center for Comparative Immigration Studies at UC San Diego.

A comprehensive immigration reform bill backed by a bipartisan Senate majority and President Obama is currently causing tremendous controversy. This presentation will examine the political, demographic, and economic origins of immigration reform and the prospects for passage. Drawing on research conducted by UCSD students, we will discuss how current U.S. policies are affecting migration from Mexico to the United States.

David FitzGerald is the Associate Professor, Gildred Chair in U.S.-Mexican Relations and Co-Director, Center for Comparative Immigration Studies. He is co-author of Culling the Masses: The Democratic Roots of Racist Immigration Policy in the Americas (Harvard University Press, 2014) and author of A Nation of Emigrants: How Mexico Manages its Migration (University of California Press, 2009). His current project examines asylum policies in comparative perspective.
