Immigration & the 2016 Election

9:30am - 12:00pm

Location
100A Jones Hall, Greenleaf Conference Room

What effect will campaign rhetoric have on Latino and immigrant voter turnout in the 2016 US Presidential elections? Can policy proposals on the campaign trail affect US relationships with immigrant sending countries? What effects could the campaigns have on future immigration, border, and refugee policies?  Join us for a discussion of these issues and more at the Center for Inter-American Policy & Research’s symposium on Immigration and the 2016 election.

Louis DeSipio (Professor, Political Science and Chicano/Latino Studies, Director Center for the Study of Democracy, UC Irvine) has studied Latino participation in elections from 1988 onwards, with other work focusing on immigration, incorporation and Latino and ethnic politics. 

Jennifer Merolla (Professor, Political Science, UC Riverside) specializes in the study of Political Behavior. Her recent work has focused on immigration, framing, and how the information environment and contexts of threats shape political attitudes.

Tom Wong (Assistant Professor, Political Science, UCSD) studies the politics of immigration, citizenship and migrant “illegality”. He is also currently an advisor to the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

This event is open to the faculty and graduate students of Tulane University and invited guests.
