Immigration reform examined

“Why immigration reform is so difficult to achieve” will be the topic addressed by Leo Chavez on March 27, when the President’s Speaker Series continues at Cal State Monterey Bay.

He is the author of Shadowed Lives: Undocumented Immigrants in American Society; Covering Immigration: Popular Images and the Politics of the Nation; and The Latino Threat: Constructing Immigrants, Citizens, and the Nation.

The presentation will start at 3:30 p.m. in the World Theater on Sixth Avenue near A Street. A question-and-answer session and a public reception will follow.

The community is invited to this free event. No tickets are necessary, but reservations are requested. Please RSVP by calling the World Theater box office at 582-4580, or going online.

The theme of this year’s speaker series is “Future Monterey Bay.” During the school year, speakers will visit campus to address various aspects of the theme.

The series is in keeping with Cal State Monterey Bay’s role as a community resource, providing forums for provocative discussions that can impact thought and action on issues important to our community.
