This conference marks two golden anniversaries of events that occurred within a day of each other half a century ago: the 50th anniversary of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 (Hart-Celler Act) and the 50th anniversary of the opening of the University of California, Irvine. The conference brings together distinguished scholars, journalists, historians and lawyers to discuss immigration policy in the United States. UCI Law Prof. Jennifer Chacón is a speaker at the conference, and Prof. Annie Lai is on the conference planning committee. Speakers will discuss the past, present and future of immigration policy, examining the shift from the inclusionary vision of the 1965 Act to the enforcement patterns we see today.
