Contact: Rebecca Baskerville, (402) 472-6990, enthompson@unl.edu
Wadhia is Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Samuel Weiss Faculty Scholar and Clinical Professor of Law at Penn State Law in University Park. Her research focuses on the role of prosecutorial discretion in immigration law and the intersections of race, national security and immigration.

Wadhia will talk about immigration reform, and the need to adopt a legal and policy framework that considers the factors driving disparate immigration enforcement–policies that affirm and include, as opposed to punish or exclude. This presentation is part of the 2021-22 theme of “Moments of Reckoning: Global Calls for Racial Equity and Action.”

Presented in partnership with the Nebraska College of Law.
