Professor Reyes was one of two panelists in an event organized by the ACLU of Central Florida and the ACLU Student Chapter of the FAMU College of Law. Professor Reyes discussed the current immigration law and policy initiatives under the Trump Administration and provided a perspective on what the rhetoric, executive orders, and enforcement actions mean for the Latina/o community. She was joined on the panel by Hassan Shibly, Chief Executive Director of the Council on America-Islamic Relations Florida (CAIR). Mr. Shibly discussed the constitutional issues and CAIR’s advocacy surrounding the Trump Administration’s so-called “Muslim ban.”
The event was held at the FAMU College of Law on March 29, 2017. It was scheduled to last until 8:00 PM, but lasted until almost 9:00 PM because students and outside visitors remained engaged during the Q&A session and the informal discussion that followed.
