The Brown Bookstore presents
Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia reads and discusses "Beyond Deportation"

Join us Thursday, August 4th at 12:30 Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia discusses Beyond Deportation: The Role of Prosecutorial Discretion in Immigration Cases, including comments on the DAPA/DACA case at the Supreme Court and beyond.  Book signing to follow.

“In Beyond Deportation, Wadhia has managed to combine meticulous research, scholarly rigor, easy readability, and an intense human compassion in highlighting one of the most volatile issues of our time.  With amazing ease, she takes on immigration, the rule of law, and the role of executive branch discretion in tempering our harsh deportation laws with humanitarian restraint and a common sense stewardship of our limited enforcement resources.  For immigrants and their families, and for all who care about law and justice, this is a powerful and compelling story, eloquently told.”-Stephen Legomsky,John S. Lehmann University Professor, Washington University in St. Louis

Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia is the Samuel Weiss Faculty Scholar and the Director of the Center for Immigrants' Rights at Pennsylvania State University Dickinson School of Law.  Previously, Wadhia was Deputy Director for Legal Affairs at the National Immigration Forum and an associate with Maggio Kattar P.C., both in Washington, D.C.
