A spate of repressive anti-immigrant laws passed in the last few years has made an estimated 11-12 million undocumented immigrant workers more vulnerable to civil and human rights violations.  With the likelihood that Congress will continue debating immigrant reform legislation this fall, the immigrant rights movement stands at the crossroads.  Panelists Angelica Salas (Executive Director of Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles), Roberto Lovato (Co-Founder of Presente.Org and former Executive Director of the Central American Resource Center), DREAM scholar Gloria Campos (Co-Chair of UCSB IDEAS), and Moderator Professor William I. Robinson (Sociology and Global and International Studies) will debate the prospects of reform legislation and discuss the challenges and prospects for the immigrant rights struggle. The MultiCultural Center Theater is located on the UCSB campus at the end of UCen Road. 

Co-sponsored by the Center for New Racial Studies; the Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies; the Department of Political Science; the Department of Sociology; El Congreso; Improving Dreams, Equality Access, and Success; the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center; and Radio Xicana.
