 On April 25, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Arizona v. United States, a case involving the legal challenge to Arizona's restrictive state immigration enforcement law "SB 1070."  The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops submitted a "friend of the court" brief in the case, supporting the United States in challenging the law.  What did the Bishops say in their brief?  What are the interests of the Catholic Church when states choose to enforce federal immigration law on their own terms?  What is wrong with a policy of "attrition through enforcement"?  
This webinar - held just two days after oral arguments - will discuss all of these issues and more.  How did the Justices react to arguments by both sides?  What is really at stake?  The webinar will place the legal arguments over SB 1070 in the context of new ways that states and localities are proposing to get more active on immigration.  It will give you a chance to hear more about state and local immigration enforcement and to ask questions directly of CLINIC's Karen Lucas and USCCB's Sara Ibrahim.


After registering you will receive a confirmation email containing information on joining the webinar.  For additional information contact Karen Siciliano Lucas at
