Approximately one in four California residents—totaling 10 million--are immigrants. Nearly half are naturalized citizens, while another quarter have some type of legal status including lawful permanent residence. The remaining quarter are in the state without legal immigration status and most live in mixed-status homes. California has led the nation in adopting laws and policies to integrate immigrants economically and socially, and is expected to continue to lead in this area in response to projected changes to federal immigration policies.
Training topics include:
- The scope of the federal immigration power and California’s jurisdiction to regulate immigrants
- California’s legislative innovations to integrate immigrants, including in higher education, public benefits, civil rights, and law enforcement
- Federal pathways to legalization and removal defenses
- Raquel Aldana, McGeorge Faculty, Immigration Law
- Blake Nordahl, McGeorge Faculty, Supervising Attorney, Immigration Clinic
- Aaron Brieno, '14 Legislative Aide, Senator Ben Hueso
