The Demonization of (Im)migrants: Dust Bowl Refugees, the Supreme Court, and the Right to Travel
September 12, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Join us for an engaging presentation by lawyer, legal scholar, and historian John S. Caragozian. In 1941, in Edwards v. California, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on the constitutionality of California’s anti-Okie law, which, like Washington’s and other states’ laws, made it illegal to knowingly assist a pauper in entering the state.
Caragozian looks at the history preceding these laws, the Supreme Court case, and implications for the legality of cross-state border criminal enforcement today.
With special welcome by Chief Judge Ricardo Martinez and Incoming Chief Judge David Estudillo.
Moderated by Richard Rahm, Esq., DLA Piper.
NOTE: THIS IS A HYBRID EVENT! Join us in person at the U.S. District Courthouse in Seattle, or watch the livestream virtually from anywhere.
