FALL 2003 LECTURE SERIES
Thursday, December 4th, 2003, 6:00-7:30 p.m.


The World Policy Institute
at New School University
presents

TERRORISM‘S AFTERMATH: AMERICA‘S WAR ON IMMIGRANTS

a panel discussion with

CYRUS MEHTA
First Vice Chair, American Immigration Law Foundation

and

DANIEL TICHENOR
Rutgers University, Author of Dividing Lines: The Politics of Immigration Control in America.

Moderated by

MICHELE WUCKER
Senior Fellow, The World Policy Institute

Following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the Bush administration has obtained and used new powers to detain immigrants without pressing charges or allowing access to lawyers. It broke up the Immigration and Naturalization Service, whose decrepit bureaucracy had failed to keep out the terrorists who destroyed the World Trade Center. The Justice Department ordered male immigrants from 33 suspect countries to register with authorities and moved to deport 13,000 of the 82,000 men who complied. Have these measures made America a safer place? How willing are we to risk mistaking innocents for terrorists? How do our post-9/11 actions compare with America‘s previous wartime treatment of immigrants? How will they affect our ability to integrate newcomers and enlist their help in the war on terror? With America‘s foreign-born population of 33 million, or 11.8% of the total, how do our post-9/11 policies fit in with a sensible immigration policy agenda?

Thursday, December 4, 2003, 6:00-7:30 p.m. Swayduck Auditorium, First Floor, 65 Fifth Avenue (between East 13-14th). Admission is free. Visit www.dialnsa.edu for a live webcast and online discussion.
