    The Trump presidency has sought to comprehensively dismantle mechanisms that welcome, value, and integrate immigrants in favor of a stance maintaining that the United States does not welcome or value immigrants—thereby calling into question basic principles that many have believed to have long since been resolved and settled. But the values implicated by immigration law are complex and difficult to define. While the United States has long proclaimed to be a “nation of immigrants,” immigration law has always sent conflicting signals. This session will examine fundamental values of contemporary immigration law and examine immigration law values past, present, and future. The session will also explore whether there are values not currently be understood as settled principles that should be. For example, is immigration law immoral if it results in separation of families? Does immigration adjudication meet basic norms of fairness? What would make immigration law closer to realizing immigration ideals?
