      Timely Immigration Conference in New Mexico

      As the national debate over immigration reform heats up once again, a
      timely conference on immigration and human rights issues will be held
      March 4 and 5 in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Co-sponsored by New Mexico State
      University’s Center for Latin American Studies and the International
      Relations Institute, the gathering will draw scholars, students and
      community leaders to consider the immigration issue within the context of
      a border human rights framework.

      A highlight of the event will include a March 4 keynote presentation and
      exhibit by author and photo-journalist David Bacon. A prolific writer on
      immigration and labor issues in the United States and Mexico, the
      California-based Bacon has spent years documenting the lives of indigenous
      and other migrants on the West Coast and elsewhere.

      Presentations will feature New Mexico State University sociologist Alison
      Newby, University of California Riverside researchers Jan and Diane Rus,
      Vicky Gaubeca of the American Civil Liberties Union New Mexico branch, and
      Ambassador Johnny Young of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, among

      According to conference organizers, the event is intended to expand the
      debate on the immigration issue, as well as help build an
      immigration-focused curriculum and research program at New Mexico State
      University and collaborating institutions of higher learning.

      Noting that the recent immigration reform controversy has centered on
      border and internal security linkages, conference organizers said the Las
      Cruces event has the potential of creating a human rights framework for
      “informing policy debates” while promoting new understandings of the roots
      and impacts of migration.

      The conference will be held at the Anderson Hall Auditorium on the New
      Mexico State University campus in Las Cruces, and is free and open to the
