Immigration in Alaska

2014-10-10 by

The Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence, Difficult Dialogues Initiative & Seawolf Debate Program debate issues related to Immigration in Alaska.

A bill recently passed by the Alaska legislature changes the duration of an Alaska driver’s license to match the expiration date of a resident immigrant’s documentation. Questions have been raised as to the role of the state in enforcing federal immigration laws, and the costs to the state of doing so. Join us as we debate this new law, and discuss several other immigration issues in Alaska.

This event was part of a series sponsored by the UAA Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence since 2003 to offer the UAA and Anchorage communities access to university resources as a basis for discussions of policies and issues affecting its future.
