Lecture

Sanctuary Cities: The Politics of Refuge

When: Mon., March 2, 5:30-7 p.m. 2020

16th annual Victor Schaub Memorial Lecture on Local Politics. A number of U.S. jurisdictions, including Arcata and Humboldt County, have declared themselves “sanctuaries” for undocumented immigrants, but what exactly does this mean? In this lecture, Loren Collingwood explores the history and religious roots of sanctuary policies. He examines how the media frames these policies, the predictors of public support for or opposition to them, and their effects on crime and Latino political incorporation. Particular attention is paid to the Humboldt County Measure K sanctuary vote. Collingwood grew up in Arcata and is Associate Professor of Political Science at UC Riverside.
